Brits in Rotterdam

Grant Gee's Patience (After Sebald) will screen as part of Spectrum

January 2012

We're looking forward to an incredible British showing at this year's Rotterdam Film Fest.

The International Film Festival Rotterdam is gearing up for its 41st edition which takes place from 25 January - 5 February 2012.  We've worked closely with the festival's programmers to ensure that the very best of British films and filmmakers made the cut.

The British contingent will be out in force with 10 features including a world premiere for Pat Holden's poltergeist feature When The Lights Went Out, a whopping 18 short films and two artist filmmaker installations / screenings.

Six emerging producers from across the UK will also take part in the Rotterdam Cinemart Producers Lab - and we will be there to see how it all goes.

Congratulations to them all!
