Fourteen films selected for Rotterdam's VPRO Tiger Awards Competition

The International Film Festival Rotterdam has selected fourteen films for the VPRO Tiger Awards Competition of its 34th edition which will open next January 26. The Competition line up counts four world premieres, four international premieres and four European premieres. Three titles were supported by the IFFR's Hubert Bals Fund and one title was previously selected as CineMart Project. Three competition titles have been acquired already for release in The Netherlands: PARADISE GIRLS; HAWAII, OSLO and NEMMENO IL DESTINO (CHANGING DESTINY).

The jury members choosing the winning films will be photographer Nan Goldin (US), producer Jan Chapman (Australia), Lia van Leer, director of the Jerusalem Film Festival (Israel), filmmaker Bahman Ghobadi (Iran) and filmmaker Lisandro Alonso (Argentina).

The three winners will be announced during IFFR 2005's Awards Ceremony, to be held on Friday February 4. Each of the three equal VPRO Tiger Awards comes with Euro 10,000 and guaranteed Dutch television screening by IFFR's main sponsor, Dutch public network VPRO.
