Check out the Closing Night 2019 programme here!

After twelve days of eye-opening, critical, moving, funny, experimental, unpredictable films (and debates, discussions and exhibitions) – it’s time to party! And in style: celebrate the spectacular close of the 47th IFFR with us on Saturday 3 February.

After the screening of the closing film, the official Closing Party will kick-off at 23:00 hours in 'de Doelen', where dancers can get their groove on until the wee hours.


The Mauskovic Dance Band
Multi-instrumentalist Nicola Mauskovic treats the audience to Afro-Caribbean disco. With his band, he blends elements from Cumbia, Afro-beats and the early 80's New York no-wave sound, creating an irresistible and hypnotic groove. The Mauskovic Dance Band wants one thing and one thing alone: to make people dance.

Philou Louzolo
Philou Louzolo (who has roots in Congo, Nigeria and Sierra Leone) spreads a message of Pan-Africanism and his love for electronic music and nightlife.


Dj Roccalberti
Roccalberti is a Rotterdam DJ with a longstanding passion for vinyl, in particular the 7” single. His music ranges from Soul, Beat, R&B, Ska, R&R, Garage and Exotica to Popcorn, French Beat, Jazz swing and groovy instrumentals. Roccalberti’s sets always guarantee one thing, and that is ‘feel good’!

DANSVOER's silent disco is back – with even more headphones! Request your favourite tune at DANSVOER à la Carte, or enjoy the house, broken beats and hip-hop from Rotterdam DJs MF Andrade, Sykes, and JJAQ (again, with a host of African influences) or get into the Art House by The Policy.
