Festivals also took place again in 2001 and 2003. In 2007 AFFR made a fresh start after a few years of silence. In 2009 the event expanded significantly in terms of visitor numbers and programming.

Festival 2013

Time Machine
On temporariness in architecture and urbanism, and the role of time in film.

Temporariness plays a key role in architecture and urbanism. To combat the problem of unoccupied space in the city, buildings are put to new uses, sometimes on a temporary basis. Future uses of urban space are considered in developing new projects, and that leads to new ways of building. AFFR examined these trends in 2013.
The festival included five world premieres and a special programme on high-rise. Reflecting the festival theme, the opening took place at the Fenixloods in Katendrecht.

Just saw: ‘the competition’ at the archtectuur filmfestival rotterdam. What a bizar world, the competition for a new building. #AFFR2013
