This is the first time I covered the the International Film Festival Rotterdam. I must admit, the Dutch event unspools films selected for being different or striking instead of political. As a cinema enthusiasts, I decided to have a more open mind perspective to filmmakers, learn new cinematic languages. Story telling that ventures into new narratives. So far, I have not been disappointed. The global filmmakers showing at the festival have produced some striking features.
2021 marks the 50th anniversary of the IFFR.
On my first day I managed to watch 3 films and 4 shorts. Not bad!
Stay tuned for coverage, features and reviews.
The International Film Festival Rotterdam runs from Feb 1st to 7th.
