Jan 23 – Feb 3, 2019
Rotterdam, The Netherlands

IFFR International Film Festival Rotterdam has always celebrated the ways in which art and film intersect. Every year, the festival incorporates exhibitions, performances and screenings of artist film and video on the big screen. At the 48th edition in 2019, artists’ moving image occupies a more central position in the festival programming than ever before.

The 2019 edition presents 24 films in the Ammodo Tiger Short Competition, including new works by Sara Cwynar, Wong Ping, Meriem Bennani, Vincent Meessen, Luke Fowler, Cauleen Smith, Su Hui-yu, Kevin Jerome Everson & Claudrena N. Harold, Madiha Aijaz, Jean-Jacques Martinod, Malena Szlam, Daniel Jacoby, Zeno van den Broek, Simon Liu, Taiki Sakpisit, Nina Fischer & Maroan el Sani, Maria Molina Peiró and Reetu Sattar. Three winners will be selected by a three-headed jury made up of Vietnamese artist Nguyen Trinh Thi, John Canciani, festival director of Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur, and Lawrence Abu Hamdan, who will also be presenting his film Walled Unwalled and his performance After SFX, presented in collaboration with Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art hosting his solo exhibition.

    Goswell Road

    On the occasion of our exhibition with Weldé at CFAlive Milan L’AMOUR TOUJOURS, we publish a new edition of the previously sold-out book that we produced with Weldé in 2017, FREIHEIT. All of the photographs in FREIHEIT were taken by Weldé on disposable cameras between 2011-2015. They show a tender side to the artist and his friend circle, and the purest form of trust. (more…)
