Writers Unlimited is a contemporary literary festival starring renowned, international writers and poets. It’s incredible that we have this in our city (and it's going for years too!)

International literature festival about our future

During Saturday Night Unlimited at the literary Winternachten Festival, almost twenty-five events take place on six different stages. Today you can go to Thinking beyond the state, a discussion about globalisation, national borders and trust in politics with writer Jennifer Clement (known for her book Gun Love). A discussion with Leni Zumas, Fiep van Bodegom and Aafke Romeijn, who all three recently released future novels, about our dark future will also take place. The Filmhuis will screen Richard Linklater’s philosophical science fiction film A Scanner Darkly for the occasion, with an introductory lecture by writer Auke Hulst about the influential work of Philip K. Dick (whose book the film is based on).

This year the festival will reflect on our future with an extensive programme that focusses on technological feasibility, doom thinking, utopias and the future of democracy and humanity. This evening focuses on a wide array of topics through the use of film screenings, discussions about the festival theme and other topical issues, music, presentations of texts and conversations.
