The Rotterdam International Film Festival (IFFR) carefully selects high-quality fiction and documentary feature films, short films and multimedia art. The focus of the festival is the recent work of new filmmakers. However, there is also room for retrospectives and themed programs. Parallel to the festival is the CineMart co-production market, the Rotterdam Lab and other industry activities.
The festival, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, is adopting a new format due to the health crisis and is taking place in two hybrid stages in February and June together in a continuous program of events, exhibitions and presentations.
From 1 to 7 February, the main Tiger Competition, Big Screen Competition and Limelight competitions will be presented in person and online.
The second part of the festival will take place from 2 to 6 June, where the 50th anniversary program will be presented as well as the new Harbor section that aims to reflect the multidimensional nature of Rotterdam and its pageant, and Bright Future, dedicated to emerging talent.
