IFFR 2022 competitions: coming soon

17 January 2022

Film still: To Love Again

Given the circumstances, we’ve had to host our flagship film competitions a little differently this year. Films in the Tiger Competition, Big Screen Competition, and Ammodo Tiger Short Competition are only available online to accredited press and industry during our festival days, but will meet local audiences later in the year once cinemas reopen in the Netherlands. This ensures our flagship selections get the exhibition they deserve: on the big screen. Keep reading for a look at the lineups.

Please note: titles in these lists do not screen to general public during IFFR 2022 between 26 January and 6 February

Tiger Competition

Our flagship Tiger Competition is the festival’s platform for emerging film talent and features a selection of 14 titles for its 51st edition. The jury will grant three prizes: the Tiger Award, worth €40,000, and two Special Jury Awards, worth €10,000 each. The Tiger Jury consists of Zsuzsi Bánkuti, Gust Van den Berghe, Tatiana Leite, Thekla Reuten and Farid Tabarki.

Big Screen Competition

The Big Screen Competition bridges the gap between popular, classic and arthouse cinema. This year, 10 titles have been selected. We invite an audience jury to grant the VPRO Big Screen Award. The winning film receives a guaranteed theatrical release in the Netherlands and will be broadcast on Dutch TV by VPRO and NPO. In addition, a €30,000 prize is awarded, equally shared between the filmmaker and the distributor who releases the film.
