The 47th edition of International Film Festival Rotterdam takes place from 24 January until 4 February 2018. The entire festival programme will be available online as of Wednesday 17 January and as a supplement to de Volkskrant newspaper of that day. International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) 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. However, within the four sections the Festival presents, there is also room for retrospectives and themed programmes. IFFR actively supports new and adventurous filmmaking talent through its co-production market CineMart, its Hubert Bals Fund, Rotterdam Lab and other industry activities.
The opening film of the 47th edition of IFFR will be Jimmie! The award winning film is about a father and son on the run. They embark on a journey through Europe that challenges our preconceptions in an unexpected way. Filmmaker Jesper Ganslandt and his son Hunter play the part of father and son, which gives this film an extra dimension! See you on 24 January for the opening of #IFFR2018, humans of Planet IFFR.
