International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) revealed the 14 films selected for the festival’s Tiger Competition, as well as the Big Screen Competition and Ammodo Tiger Short Competition selections. The festival also announced the IFFR 2022 Selection available to audiences in the Netherlands on IFFR.com from January 26 to February 6, 2022. The program includes titles in Harbour, Limelight, Bright Future and Cinema Regained.

The 51st edition program has been scaled down and moved online in response to increased concerns about Covid-19 and the lockdown in the Netherlands. The IFFR 2022 Selection offers audiences in the Netherlands online access to 52 film titles, including titles from Harbour, Bright Future, Cinema Regained, Focus: Amanda Kramer and RTM. The program will be made available on demand from Thursday January 27 until Sunday February 6.

The world premiere of Amanda Kramer’s feature film Please Baby Please, accompanied by Lewie and Noah Kloster’s short film Stranger Than Rotterdam with Sara Driver, will open IFFR 2022 during the Opening Night timed screening on January 26.

Festival director Vanja Kaludjercic: “The announcement of our full festival program is always an exciting moment and this year is no exception. After the tough decision to move our festival online, we’ve curated a wonderful online selection for our audiences here in the Netherlands, whilst also ensuring that our competition lineups and the filmmakers who trusted us with their premieres will be given a platform within our Press & Industry Selection. When cinemas are allowed to open again, we will present competition titles on the big screen to our audiences later in the year.”
