The 7th Wildlife Film Festival Rotterdam

The 7th Wildlife Film Festival Rotterdam (WFFR) will take place from 26 – 31 October 2021. The festival focuses on the screening of wildlife, environment, sustainability, climate change and conservation documentaries.

The 2021 festival will take place during six days in beautiful Rotterdam, The Netherlands. We will be screening all of our Official Selections in the heart of Rotterdam at Cinerama Movie Theatre. The festival programme offers more than 120 public screenings, a daily talks programme and various events in the city centre of Rotterdam. WFFR also takes place online.

We encourage filmmakers to join us at the festival for talks, interviews, Q&A’s and the Award Ceremony. During the festival there is plenty of time for filmmakers to meet each other and our audience. Filmmakers can receive complimentary hotel loging, a compensation of their travel expenses and free access to all festival related events and screenings. Please read the rules and terms on FilmFreeway for this.

In 2019 WFFR welcomed more than 10,000 visitors. Filmmakers can win prizes in 12 different categories. Winners will be announced during the Flamingo Award Ceremony on Saturday 30st of Oct 2021.
