Information for film professionals

Each year WFFR offers a high quality line-up of carefully selected wildlife, conservation or environmental films to demonstrate the beauty of nature and to raise awareness about the collective responsibility we have to maintain it. Filmmakers from anywhere in the world can participate in this competition.

WFFR invites (independent) filmmakers, production companies, distributors or broadcasters to submit their latest film(s). This year WFFR will be held from the 4th – 9th of October 2022. The deadline for submission is April 15th 2022.

The festival program offers 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).

WFFR is also a meeting place for the wildlife film industry in The Netherlands. We are known for a friendly and informal atmosphere where all our guests feel at home. Here you can catch-up with other film professionals, participate in daily talks/q&a’s and meet the Dutch audience.
