The Festival


Wildlife Film Festival Rotterdam will take place from the 30 October – 3 November 2019. WFFR is a multi-day film festival focused on the screening of wildlife films and documentaries. The festival will take place in the heart of Rotterdam, in Cinerama movie theatre. WFFR is a private initiative set up by volunteers, and born from passion for animals, nature and film. The festival is organised by a non-profit foundation.

The main program of the festival consists of a competition program that is open to professional and non-professional nature filmmakers from the Netherlands and abroad. A selection committee selects the films that will be screened at the festival. As an encouragement for talented filmmakers to enter into the competition, awards can be won in various categories. The expert jury will present these awards to the winning filmmakers in a festive manner.

In addition to the competition program, WFFR includes educational activities for children as well as other activities (such as themed evenings and Q&A’s).
