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.

Spaceship Earth

Biosphere 2 was a unique architectural and ecological experiment of particular relevance to today. Spaceship Earth tells the fascinating story of the futurist complex in which eight idealistic scientists hermetically sealed themselves off from the outside world for two years in the 1990s. Inspired by the work of Buckminster Fuller and the science fiction film Silent Running, they embarked on a crazy experiment in voluntary quarantine, by the standards of which today’s Covid-19 isolation pales into insignificance. Never before has the story with the dramatic conclusion, including original footage of the ‘biospherians’, been told so revealingly.

Please note: Spaceship Earth will be screened as a Drive-In film on Thursday 7 October at RDM Rotterdam. The regular screening on Saturday 9 October will take place in LantarenVenster.

Drive-In tickets cost € 34.50 per car with two people, including two drinks. Access only by car. The sound of the film is broadcast via FM frequency. Make sure your car radio is working. The frequency will be announced upon arrival. You are only allowed to leave your car to visit the toilet and to collect drinks or snacks.

When you enter you will receive tokens for two free drinks. In addition, you can buy delicious nachos, snacks and drinks at Esa’s Nachos food truck.

The RDM site at Scheepsbouwweg 12 opens at 19:00. Be on time for the best position. The movie starts at 20:00.
