We’re back to the island of Vlieland for the seventh year, bringing a late summer film programme to Into The Great Wide Open festival.

Lucky ones with a ticket to this sold out festival will be able to enjoy a special selection from IFFR, dedicated this year to short film, live performance and art. The programme will show at Podium Vlieland, the island’s local cinema space, and one additional work can be discovered in the woods along the festival’s art route.

Days of Future Past is IFFR’s take on the ITGWO 2019 theme Possible Futures. In which, there will be philosophically and speculatively tinted visions of past and future in surprising narrative forms.

Two main compilations, Days of Future Past I and Days of Future Past II, will feature short films from recent editions of IFFR. Such as Tomek Popakul’s award-winning noisy animation Acid Rain, as well as The Juggler by Skirmanta Jakaitė’ and The Sasha by María Molina Peiró, both selected for the Tiger Short Competition at IFFR 2019. 

Next to this will be Days of Future Past III, a selection of graduate projects of the VAV Moving Image department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. Two live A/V performances by experimental artists Joost Rekveld, Justin Bennett and Roelf Toxopeus. And Donna Verheijden’s Kiss The Sky - Eye Trick and I as the art route selection. 

For the kids. who we don’t forget, we’ve put together two compilations from the festival’s education programme. Screening on both Saturday and Sunday morning: a cool collection of animated shorts from all over the world, as well as an ode to heroes.
