More programme confirmations
IFFR 2021 also presents two unique programmes to be experienced online and in physical form outdoors during the February dates. Tiger on the Loose consists of a series of interactive art installations mapped across Rotterdam in outdoor locations. Audiences will be able to experience film excerpts in an Augmented Reality set-up at their leisure and in complete safety. IFFR 100 proudly exhibits 100 festival posters on IFFR.com and projected onto Rotterdam’s prominent and grand Pathé Schouwburgplein cinema – showcasing 50 posters from the festival’s archive, alongside 50 designs conceived for future editions, venturing all the way to 2071. The exhibition features each edition’s official poster, from the very first designed by Evert Maliangkay to 75B’s latest adaptation of the tiger, alongside designs by Willem de Kooning Academy students who imagine the visual language of IFFR for the next 50 years.
In addition, IFFR Plays Back ◀◀ invites festival visitors and former Tiger Award-winning filmmakers – including last year’s Tiger Award winner, Zheng Lu Xinyuan – to share tales of IFFR edition past and creative tributes to the festival in short film recordings. IFFR Plays Back ◀◀ films will be available to watch on IFFR.com.
