International Film Festival Rotterdam

Netherlands
All genres

International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) has become a key European film event thanks largely to its considerable audience numbers and its industry driven screenings and activities. It programs a high quality line-up of fiction and documentary feature films, shorts films and media art. The IFFR actively supports new filmmaking talent through its co-production market CineMart, its Hubert Bals Fund, Rotterdam Lab and Industry Office activities.

The festival program includes two competitions and three non-competitive sections, with works supported by IFFR's Hubert Bals Fund or launched as projects at CineMart.

The Hubert Bals Fund is for filmmakers from Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and parts of Eastern Europe and provides grants to enable completion of their films.

CineMart is a four day market for new feature films, each year inviting about 35 new projects to be pitched by the directors and producers to the invited co-producers, sales agents, distributors and financiers. Rotterdam Lab is for newer feature film producers and takes place at CineMart to educate them in working in the international market place. Attendance is only via participating countries.

RECENT ATTENDEE COMMENTS

“This is definitely a valuable market for me. I’m interested in going to IFFR... as it really was the best place to meet agents and executives who find it difficult to meet... at the bigger markets.”

“An excellent festival to attend for up and coming filmmakers as the purpose of the IFFR is to identify and promote new talent.”

“It was quite easy to make the most of this environment; I connected with everyone I could, not just producers from regions with which Australia has a co-production treaty – producer, financiers, sales agents, commissioning editors etc. etc.”

“IFFR likes to see the continuing works of filmmakers they’ve screened before.”

“IFFR has some if the best organisation, visual presence and helpful resources and staff I’ve ever come across.”

“The festival organised several functions for guests to network…There was also a ‘pigeon hole’ at the guest desk for every festival guest where items or notes could be passed to other guests…The festival provided each guest with an Industry Manual… very useful.”

“Overall I would recommend this festival for its great audience and industry attendance and profile.”
