Join us for LV♥IFFR Encore

IFFR and LantarenVenster are two film institutes that have been sending each other heart emojis for a long time. Now, we’re teaming up to bring a new programme series: LV♥IFFR Encore. Join us in LV each month for a special IFFR film screening with side programme!

During these evenings we look both ahead and back at IFFR with screenings of IFFR gems that deserve a re-run, fresh films from other festivals, and, this summer, a screening of the unique nearly 14 hours long film La Flor by Mariano Llinás. Afterwards we discuss and celebrate the vibrant Rotterdam cinematic scene with a drink and music.

The series kicks off on Friday 10 May with the feature-film debut Take Me Somewhere Nice by Ena Sendijarević. This refreshing and humorous road movie follows a teenage Bosnian-Dutch girl who travels her homeland. The film won the Special Jury Award at IFFR 2019 and was selected for the ACID programme of the upcoming Cannes Film Festival. The screening is preceded by a video essay by film critic Joost Broeren-Huitenga (Filmkrant) and followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Ena Sendijarević.

Below you’ll find the programme for the coming months. More to be announced later!
