Welcome to the film submission and accreditation area of the Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam.

10th edition of Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam:
10-14 October 2018, LantarenVenster Rotterdam

The Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam explores the relation between film, city and architecture. In nine editions, AFFR has matured into a leading international podium for films about architecture, urban development and the built environment. AFFR brings together not only a broad public from The Netherlands but also city lovers, students, researchers, designers and film makers from all over the world, all of whom engage with one another in debate about the past, present and future of the city.

The theme of AFFR 2018 is ‘Building Happiness’: the festival explores how we can view the side effects of the pursuit of prosperity as a challenge to create a better and more sustainable world.

Filmmakers and film producers can submit films, documentaries and shorts in the field of city and architecture in general, or with a focus on the theme of ‘Building Happiness’ in particular, via this form. Submission is free of charge.

Please include with your submission a secure online screener, trailer, synopsis and high-resolution stills. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday 16 May 2018. Selection takes place in early July 2018.
