Because Alliance Française Amsterdam aims to promote francophone culture and language in the Netherlands, we offer numerous cultural, educational and social events, all punctuated by diversity and exchange. 


Alliance Francaise Amsterdam proposes to cultural events to everyone in the Netherlands. Whether you are a francophone expatriate or a French-learner, beginner or advanced level, there is something for you! 


Our monthly Apéro and Café conversation and Dîner en français are organized to enable French-speaking people (B1+) to meet other French-speakers and practice their French, the whole in a friendly and warmful atmosphere.

Twice a month, we propose screenings of french movies accessible to non-French speakers: Soirée Ciné (dutch subtitles) at Het Ketelhuis and Ciné-classique (english subtitles) at Café Brecht. Both are followed by a discussion in French around the film. 

We also organize punctual events, such as concerts or soirée jeux en français. Don't hesitate to regurlarly check this page or our social networks to be aware of our last cultural events!
