Festival director Vanja Kaludjercic: “We’re extending a warm welcome to our 2022 edition competition filmmakers to join us in Rotterdam, where they’ll introduce their remarkable work to audiences and press alike. Reuniting with attending filmmakers, including names like Mabrouk El Mechri, Morgane Dziurla-Petit and Yamasaki Juichiro, will be a very special moment, and we hope you can join us for this festive weekend.”
