The prestigious International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) returns to present an amazingly diverse selection of films, parties and networking events! This year marks the 50th anniversary edition of the festival!

IFFR and developing world cinema

What makes IFFR stand out consistently is its focus on international cinema. The festival helps talented, independent filmmakers from all across the world to reach the broadest possible audiences. The festival is known for its innovative programming and its focus on independent works. Quality films from many different countries are presented to a large, international audience in Rotterdam with the aim of inspiring and broadening horizons.
