AFFR History

The Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam (AFFR) was established in 2000, and the foundation organized its festival the same year as the first architecture film festival in the world. 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.

Magnificent poetic film about the layered quality of our world, or rather, of our parallel worlds. That parallelism has fascinated filmmakers for much longer, but it has rarely been captured so calmly. The camera tenderly records humanity and human artefacts in a Moroccan city through the evening, night and following morning. In the process, the film reveals our vulnerability, letting us realize that we are essentially alone. At the same time, the filmmakers indicate the beauty – as a consolation? – of an illuminated sign, a concrete tunnel, plastic chairs, a lit-up window, the choreography that results from the call to prayer. In short, a beauty that you only see when you look.
