WFFR: 4 – 9 October 2022

The 8th Wildlife Film Festival Rotterdam (WFFR) will take place from 4 – 9 October 2022. The festival focuses on the screening of wildlife, environment and conservation films to demonstrate the beauty of nature and to raise awareness about the collective responsibility we have to maintain it.

The festival program offers 120+ public screenings and events at Cinerama Movie Theatre that is located downtown Rotterdam. WFFR also takes place online from 5 – 30 October 2022 (geoblocked for The Netherlands only).

We invite you to join us at the festival for films, talks, q&a’s and drinks. During the festival there is plenty of time to meet filmmakers or to socialise with (new) friends or collegues. You can buy early bird tickets from 3 – 16 September 2022. Regular ticket sales starts 17 September 2022.

The first edition of WFFR was organised in 2015 in Rotterdam with no more then 2,100 visitors. In 2019 WFFR welcomed more than 12,500 visitors. The 2020 and 2021 editions went differently due to corona restrictions. The festival program for the 2022 edition will be announced September 3th 2022.
