IFFR Live 2015
In a partnership with Fortissimo Films, TrustNordisk, Doc & Film and KPN, IFFR introduced a unique international live cinema event: IFFR Live. This series of five film premieres was held during the 44th International Film Festival Rotterdam. The films were screened simultaneously in cinemas across Europe and on VOD.
IFFR Live gave the audience the opportunity to experience the unique thrill of being part of a major international film festival. In addition to watching the film in theatres and online in countries ranging from the UK to Spain and Poland, audiences were able to see directors and film crews attend the premieres in Rotterdam and participate in live Q&A sessions via Twitter. IFFR Live is designed to celebrate, enhance and expand the live festival experience, of watching a film in the presence of the filmmaker and cast, through the use of new technologies and social media. The films:
- Erbarme Dich - Matthäus Passion Stories
- Speed Walking
- The Sky Above Us
