City for Sale

The next Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam takes place at LanterenVenster cinema from 4 to 8 October 2017. This year's festival focuses on the city as a commodity. Under the motto ‘City for Sale’, AFFR will explore the effects of international flows of capital on the composition of the city and its population: buildings as investment models, architecture as a tourist attraction and the city as a revenue model.

Festival 2015

Global Home
On displacement, temporary living, identity and the concept of home.

In a world of mass migration and refugees, and a tourist industry that spans the globe, AFFR explored how people create temporary yet meaningful homes and how globalization affects the shape of the city. The theme surfaced in various films and debates, and was extensively discussed with filmmakers, experts and audiences at the Global Home Club Night. The festival opened at Theater Zuidplein, one of the most multicultural places in Rotterdam. And to emphasize the international character of AFFR, the festive evening was streamed live in ten film theatres around the world, including Santiago, Milan, Johannesburg and Copenhagen.

Opening Night AFFR 2015

Het festival opende in Theater Zuidplein, een van de meest multiculturele plekken van Rotterdam. En om het internationale karakter van AFFR te benadrukken, werd deze feestelijke avond live gestreamd naar tien filmtheaters over de hele wereld, waaronder Santiago, Milaan, Johannesburg en Kopenhagen.

“How can we design cities to absorb the increased demand for temporary accommodation? What does the network city look like? Where is the boundary between permanence and transience, identity and anonymity, the built and the virtual home? In short: what is a Global Home?”
