After a ten-year break, 2018 sees the return of Rotterdämmerung to IFFR. Say what? We found the following description of this eyebrow-raising programme in our archives: ‘Films in which their makers seek out the boundaries of genres and bend conventions to their will in their own inimitable way.’ Modern classics REC, Let the Right One in and Viva were poster titles at the time. Films you can expect at the upcoming edition include a French existential zombie drama, a remake of an Indonesian cult horror hit and a revenge-action-drama. Like we said: the films in Rotterdämmerung just can’t be forced into any one genre.
