We Festival

Open concept, multi-media festival.


We're an open concept, multi-media festival in Maastricht, Netherlands. For the first time, this year, we are hosting a Film festival! 
We're going to do a three day long film marathon in multiple locations in the city with an opening & closing, a viewer's award and Q&As for all the films we can. 
We are open to any sort of genre, as far as the story you're telling is well told and fluent with the mood of the festival as a whole :)

The aim of The WE Festival is to stimulate local culture by connecting all groups present in the city, and use that collective empowerment to achieve together what would be impossible on our own. This can be hosting a workshop promoting sustainability, presenting at one of our Pecha Kuchas, performing at one of our music events or parties or organising something outside of the box. We've now had 6 years of experience and each year only gets bigger and better!


The Festival is organising a competition for the most appreciated films in their categories based on the viewer's votes. The 3 best films in each category will get an award.


  • Your film must have been completed after 1st April 2017, and must have English audio and/or English subtitles.
  • Submit via Filmfreeway. 
  • We strongly encourage you to submit the most complete version of your film possible. We cannot guarantee that replacement cuts will be viewed. If you are submitting a rough cut, please indicate in your application what elements are still incomplete: temporary sound, temporary graphics, missing scenes, etc. To discuss the timing of submitting a rough cut, please email
