Several (inter)national writers come together with their readers and translators in TivoliVredenburg. Tim Parks, Sonja Barend, Paulien Cornelisse, Gerd Busse, Mary Costello, Hannah van Binsbergen and Herman Koch are added to the line up.
Not only writers, but also literary translators will appear on stage at the ILFU. In the form of different workshops, lectures and of course during the ceremony of the Filter Translation Prize 2017, ILFU will focus on the art of the literary translation. On this page we will collect all of the translation programs.

After a successful first edition in the former post office in Utrecht, the International Literature Festival Utrecht (ILFU) moves to a new location for this year’s edition. During three festival evenings ILFU brings together international novel writers, translators and readers in music venue TivoliVredenburg.
‘Either I’m too dumb to understand and it’s me, or it is bullshit’, proclaimed Laurent Binet during #ilfu16. For two days writers from all over the world spoke about the power of the novel. Return to this wonderful event in the monumental Post Office one more time with the after movie by EditieM!
