After seven successful editions of the Curacao International Film Festival Rotterdam (”CIFFR”), the eighth edition will take place from April 10th – April 14th 2019. During this five-day event there will be around 125 screenings from a selection of 40-45 films.
Every year, the selection of films includes premieres of both local as well as international productions, with several regional and sometimes international premieres. CIFFR is organized by Fundashon Bon Intenshon and the International Film Festival Rotterdam (“IFFR”).
CIFFR hosts two competitions: the Yellow Robin Award and the Caribbean Shorts. Both focus as much as possible on regional and locally produced features films and shorts.
Besides the five-day event, CIFFR also presents a live-streamed feature from Rotterdam during IFFR in January, and, shortly prior to the festival, a preview film.
