The Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam is the world’s biggest international platform for films about the city and architecture. In this eleventh edition, the festival is once again programming a stunning selection of works about current themes related to society and the city. Broader and more topical than ever, the programme includes world premieres and films never previously screened in the Netherlands.
For the past nineteen years, AFFR has offered filmmakers a platform to showcase their view of the built environment. In collaboration with The Independent School for The City, the festival in 2019 is launching a Film & Architecture Studio, a four-day masterclass for young designers and filmmakers. In addition, the festival is exploring the field of new media with the presentation of compelling VR productions and a study of the city and architecture in the world of gaming.
Furthermore, we are organizing a host of events with various programme and learning partners. They include a debate about women in construction with the Royal Institute of Dutch Architects (BNA), a Rotterdam Special with AIR, discussions about energy transition with the Vereniging Deltametropool and about urban nature with the Goethe Institut, the ArchiNed Tips, the Architectenweb Best of AFFR, and an ever-growing series of film introductions by celebrated speakers.Share this item
