Bij een filmfestival draait het om meer dan alleen maar film kijken, dus zijn er aan het specialsprogramma van het LIFF bijzondere elementen toegevoegd om alle, ja alle, zintuigen te stimuleren dan wel uit te schakelen. Ervaar niet alleen films op unieke locaties als het Rijksmuseum van Oudheden, Museum Volkenkunde, Naturalis of de Wibar, maar voel, zing, dans, proef en ruik mee tijdens bijzondere filmvertoningen of op een van onze feestjes!
