IFFR recognises the vital importance of film analysis and criticism. That’s why, in 1998, they launched their Young Film Critics trainee programme to support a new generation of young and upcoming film critics.
A group of young and motivated professional film critics from outside the Netherlands are invited to cover their festival. They provide them with the means to sharpen their journalistic practice and explore the wide landscape of independent cinema on offer at IFFR, one of the major international film festivals for press, industry members and audiences.
The programme provides a unique insight into a broad range of programmes on offer at our festival, ranging from films by well-known arthouse auteurs to more experimental and obscure cinematic gems and from art installations and performances to talks and film industry conferences. In the past editions, IFFR welcomed Young Film Critics from all regions of the world. Last year, at IFFR 2020, They had participants from Australia, Indonesia, Portugal, the United Kingdom and Uruguay.
