LantarenVenster – Architecture Film Festival

Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam 2011
6 – 9 Oct
LantarenVenster, Rotterdam

Fresh movies, cult hits, documentaries, animations and art-house gems: the AFFR screens about 100 very different films and with interviews, bike tours and debates it is by far the most ambitious program ever. The films have one thing in common. Architecture is always the protagonist.

For its sixth edition, the AFFR has therefore opted for the most spectacular part of Rotterdam: the new LantarenVenster of architect Álvaro Siza at the Wilhelminapier.
