AFFR 2022

The fourteenth edition of the Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam will again take place in the LantarenVenster film theater. The opening film on the 5th of October is located at Theater Zuidplein again.

With this year’s theme ‘Freeze Frame’, AFFR 2022 will take a moment of full stop, to look back and reflect on all the current challenges in the world. A freeze frame like we know it from movies, is an unexpected pause in the story, a reflection on what happened, and a reconsideration of focus and direction.

The festival takes place from the 5th to the 9th of October 2022. Sign up for one or more shifts as a volunteer through the form below!
