Rutger Wolfson – Festival Director – International Film Festival Rotterdam

As we approach a new edition of the International Film Festival Rotterdam, arguably the year’s first important film festival in Europe, we chat with its festival Rutger Wolfson who talks with us about what we can expect from this year’s IFFR, which will be the 44th in its history and also his last as its festival director.

He tells us about the emphasis placed on helping filmmakers finding an audience through fascinating industry events, the new thematic programmes that will make up the bulk of the programming but also reflects upon the different ways in which the festival has innovated and renovated itself throughout the years and more specifically throughout the years in which he filled the role of its director.

One of the largest public film events in the world, IFFR actively supports independent filmmaking from around the globe and is a recognized platform in Europe for launching new films and talent.
