The IFFR is one of the largest cultural events in the Netherlands and one of the largest public film festivals in the world. With the latest feature films, documentaries, short films, exhibitions, performances and talk shows, Rotterdam is an exciting global film capital until Sunday 2 February 2020.

There are special theme programmes at the festival again this year where art, (new) media and film come together. De Doelen, the heart of the festival, is a lovely place to meet for snacks and drinks and has live performances, debates and Q&A’s with filmmakers and actors. Every film evening ends with a fantastic party at the Theater Rotterdam Schouwburg.
