IFFR returns to cinemas in October

02 June 2022


From 14 to 16 October, Cinerama and LantarenVenster will host IFFR 2022: Return of the Tiger – our weekend of IFFR 2022 competition screenings in Rotterdam. Join us for a programme of Tiger, Big Screen and Ammodo Tiger Short competition titles that could not screen at the start of the year, with filmmakers and special guests.

Festival Director, Vanja Kaludjercic: “When Covid-19 restrictions forced us to shift online just before the start of the festival, we made the tough decision to not make the competition titles available yet to audiences, but to wait to present these titles as they were meant to be seen: on the big screen. We’re happy to honour our commitment to those filmmakers who trusted us with their work, and are very much looking forward to celebrating cinema with audiences in full capacity screening rooms for the first time since 2020 – rediscovering the true essence of IFFR.”

The festival dates from 26 January to 6 February took place against the backdrop of renewed Covid-19 restrictions in the Netherlands, offering a streamlined lineup of titles online to audiences that did not include competition titles, with the exceptional on-site world-premiere of Along the Way when restrictions lifted. A more extensive collection of festival selections and competitions was made available online to press and industry. Competition winners were announced on 2 February

A complete programme schedule and list of attending guests will be announced before the event.
