IFFR LIVE 2017 presents film events from Rotterdam to Singapore
 

For the third time, International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) presents the exciting live cinema experience IFFR Live. Six films will premiere simultaneously in more than fifty cinemas across the world during the 46th edition of the festival. For the first time, audiences outside of Europe can take part in the live event.

The third edition of the groundbreaking IFFR Live event brings films and related events from Rotterdam to all corners of the world, creating the largest simultaneous film festival screenings in the world. The viewers – in a cinema in the Netherlands, Poland, Spain or elsewhere – can all participate in the Q&A session following the film by using #livecinema on social media, and experience the Rotterdam festival feeling from a distance. The number of participating cinemas has increased for the upcoming edition, and also countries outside of Europe will connect with IFFR during the events.

Melissa van der Schoor, Head of IFFR Distribution: “Continuing to develop IFFR Live as the first of its kind and probably one of the largest simultaneous film festival screenings in the world is something truly exciting. With our expanding network of collaborating cinemas we are also venturing outside of Europe for the first time and we look forward to welcoming audiences from new participating cities such as Tel Aviv and Singapore. With a strong lineup, more events, more performances and a strong sense of communal experience at its very core, we hope to establish a new mode of distribution for these quality European films.”

The third edition of IFFR Live takes place from Friday 27 January to Sunday 29 January and features the following films:
Friday 27 January 2017 - 19:00 hours CET - Mister Universo
Friday 27 January 2017 - 22:30 hours CET - Title to be announced

Home
Fien Troch, Belgium, 2016, 103 min.
Where and with whom do you feel at home? This is the theme the teenage friends and their families grapple with in Fien Troch’s latest drama. Who can you truly trust when you have nowhere left to turn? The tension is always palpable, partly thanks to Johnny Jewel’s seamlessly fitting soundtrack.

The Giant
Johannes Nyholm, Sweden/Denmark, 2016, 86 min.
He might be handicapped, but Rikard Boberg has set his sights on winning an important pétanque championship. He thinks he will then be reunited with his mother. Particularly with the help of the giant from his imaginative fantasies. A Western-like soundtrack accompanies the modern fable of cowboy Rikard and his remarkable quest.
Attending IFFR Live: filmmaker Johannes Nyholm, cast Christian Andrén and Johan Kylén.

The sixth IFFR Live title will be announced shortly.
