As previously announced in de Volkskrant supplement, the June edition of IFFR would be shown throughout the country, including at Eye. Unfortunately, due to the current measures surrounding Covid-19, physical screenings of these IFFR films in our theatre will not be possible.

International Film Festival Rotterdam is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year! IFFR 2021 concludes with a festive programme taking place on 2-6 June. Eye joins in the celebrations with a special, one-off double bill on our Eye Film Player.

Cinema Regained x Eye

On 28 May, Eye offers a special, one-off double bill on our Eye Film Player, our restoration of Van de koele meren des doods (1982), the adaptation of Frederik van Eeden’s turn-of-the-century novel, translated into English as The Deeps of Deliverance, followed by the thematically related IFFR film Amorosa (1986) by Mai Zetterling.

Amorosa is preceded by a not-to-be-missed introduction by IFFR programmer Olaf Möller. Director Nouchka van Brakel talks with film programmer Lauren Murphy prior to the screening of her film Van de koele meren des doods.
