Over twenty French productions and French-majority co-productions, along with a similar number of minority co-productions, will be showcased at this year's Rotterdam International Film Festival (IFFR), which, as always, highlights recent independent and avant-garde works on the margins of traditional filmmaking.
Founded in 1972, the Rotterdam International Film Festival (IFFR) has, over the years, cemented its position as a major "headhunter" for filmmakers who explore the forms and boundaries of cinema.
A key event on the movie industry calendar, this festival offers a wide range of different sections, including two competitive selections—Bright Future and Voices. French independent filmmaking and experimental works will be represented this year by Bertrand Mandico, Serge Bozon, Valérie Massadian, and the Olivier Peyon/Cyril Brody duo.
In the Limelight section, the current festival favorites Montparnasse Bienvenüe, Custody, Razzia, and The Insult will no doubt once again dazzle audiences.
