Thanks for visiting AFFR 2021

Thanks to the recent relaxation of corona measures, we were able to receive rooms full of lovers of film, city and architecture again. This was much appreciated by a large and enthusiastic audience. With great pleasure we have again received many guests from home and abroad. The discussions around the theme More Than Houses were lively and relevant. The films were of exceptionally high quality, as evidenced by the great appreciation by our audience.

We thank all visitors, volunteers, guests, filmmakers, sponsors, partners and funds for their contribution to and presence at this memorable film festival after a year and a half of pandemic.

We hope to see everyone healthy and well during the fourteenth AFFR: 5 to 9 October 2022!
