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.

AFFR 2020
The twelfth edition of the Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam takes place at LantarenVenster cinema from 7 to 11 October 2020. The AFFR editors — headed by curator Jord den Hollander — select around 85 high-profile international films about recent developments in the city and architecture. In addition to screening feature films and documentaries, the festival includes talk shows, debates and lectures related to topical issues.

Submit your film at AFFR 2020.

Guilty Architecture
With the theme of ‘Guilty Architecture’, the Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam turns its attention to the changing role of architecture and urbanism in a rapidly polarizing world. Historical continuity (or the perception of it) in the built environment is increasingly embraced in the debate around authenticity and identity. It finds expression in an urge to build on tradition and memory. Yet while populist political leaders propagate traditional values and classical styles as symbols of unity and national identity, what exactly is the role of the government in determining the architecture of its buildings? And just how value-free is architecture today?
