Due to concerns about corona and the lockdown in the Netherlands. IFFR has decided to run the 51st edition of the festival online in a slimmed-down form. During International Film Festival Rotterdam 2022, audiences in the Netherlands will have online access to 52 films
IFFR always offers a high-quality line-up of carefully selected fiction and documentary feature films, short films and media art. The festival’s focus is on recent work by talented new filmmakers, with space for retrospectives and themed programs.
The films will be available on-demand from Thursday 27 January to Sunday 6 February. The festival is opened with the world premiere of Please Baby Please by Amanda Kramer together with the short film Stranger Than Rotterdam with Sara Driver by Lewie and Noah Kloster. The start is on 26 January with an online Opening Night screening at 8 pm.
The IFFR Talks program will be accessible worldwide on IFFR.com, including Big Talks with American filmmaker, artist and writer Amanda Kramer, French actor and director Mathieu Amalric, and Thai cinematographer and Robby Müller Award winner Sayombhu Mukdeeprom.
A nice selection of films
Festival director Vanja Kaludjercic: “The announcement of the full festival programme is always an exciting moment. This year is no different, even after the difficult decision to continue International Film Festival Rotterdam 2022 only online. On our website, we will present a nice selection of films for audiences in the Netherlands. At the same time, we will ensure that the competition films and the filmmakers who entrusted us with their premieres get a stage in the program. Accessible to accredited press & industry worldwide. Later in the year, as soon as cinemas are allowed to open again, we will show the competition films to the public on the big screen.”
