21:00 – 00:00 NFKlubnight

NFK Lounge

It is the last week of the semester and the last Fakbar of the semester comes with it. Why not end it with a bang? After the success of the last one, NFK brings back another NFKlubNight. Our very own philosophy DJ duo ‘Frisbee’ takes on the turntable once more. So, let go of all the exam stress for one night and join us for one last party this semester before the gloomy exam season ahead.

We hope to see you there!

20:00 – 23:00 International Movienight: Abel

HIW, Room S 01.14

Welcome all to the final installment (of this semester) of NFK International Movie Nights! This evening we will be watching ‘Abel’ by Alex van Warmerdam.

Alex van Warmerdam is a prolific Dutch film- and theatremaker, painter, writer, poet and musician. His debut film ‘Abel’ was written and directed by van Warmerdam and also has him playing the main role of Abel, a thirty-something shut-in who lives with his parents and doesn’t want more out of life than to cut a fly in half and watch some tv with his mother. The movie is a uniquely tragi-comical tale of (sur)real family dynamics, love, lies and confusion.

After the movie there will be time to discuss the movie. This discussion will start with a philosophical reflection on the movie by Jelger Groeneveld.

Thursday 19/12

19:45 – 23:00 NFK Culture goes to Inuït presents: Poppel + Lapis Lazuli

Join us to go to a free concert together!
Inuït presents: Poppel + Lapis Lazuli

Do you want to have a great night with friends while listening to some awesome music?

We meet at 7:45PM at the institute, the concert starts at 8PM in Leuven Central.

12:00 – 14:00 Christmas Breadmeal


Because NFK doesn’t like to throw away food, we will serve the rests of the Christmas dinner on our last breadmeal. In this way, people who couldn’t make it on the NFKhristmas dinner will also have the opportunity to taste the delicious food we prepared for our students. People who were present, but can’t get enough of it or certainly also welcome. And this for only €1.5, IF you clean your dishes of course.
