His passion for film and forthright opinions have made Mark Kermode one of the most outspoken and controversial film critics in Britain. His insights in his weekly podcast reveal his versatility, in live recordings of his monthly shows at the British Film Institute, list shows such as '2001 Films You Must See Before You Die’ and deep dives into cult curiosities in 'Hell's Video Store’.

He brings his podcast to Rotterdam for a rip-roaring live show, to go head-to-head with comedian and filmmaker (and notorious opponent) Jack Howard. In previous editions, Kermode and Howard have clashed in relation to films such as Joker and Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood – their confrontation at IFFR promises to produce more fireworks.

Kermode on Film is produced by HLA Agency.
