There is nothing like the shared experience of enjoying a film with a room full of people. Oh wait, there is! Because if you go to one of the five IFFR Live shows, you could be joined by thousands of others. IFFR Live made its groundbreaking debut last year, and streams the Rotterdam premieres simultaneously to all corners of Europe and beyond.
More than 40 film theatres participate, in the Netherlands, but also in Warsaw, Madrid, Manchester, and even in Curaçao and Montreal. But it does not have to feel as if your co-viewers are that far away, because the audience abroad can take part in the IFFR discussions with filmmakers and actors via Twitter, using #livecinema.
