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.

The Fountainhead
The Fountainhead (King Vidor, 1949) is considered by many people to be the ultimate architecture film. Based on the 1943 novel by Ayn Rand, the film features Gary Cooper as Howard Roark, an architect convinced of his own genius. Dominique (Patricia Neal) falls for him and his buildings. The film is often the subject of debate on account of Rand’s crypto-fascist ideas and the phallic symbolism of the imagery. Even so, The Fountainhead is an interesting project because of its starring cast, music, camera work and direction. And because of the universal themes of building and urban development that are still as strong today as they were when the film was made, almost 70 years ago.
