Curacao International Film Festival
The Curaçao International Film Festival Rotterdam is an initiative born out of a blossoming friendship between the island’s local organization Fundashon Bon Intenshon and International Film Festival Rotterdam. This annual Curaçao festival takes place in the vibrant capital Willemstad.
Just like the city, the festival is colorful. These colors are created by CIFFR’s efforts to go beyond the borders of countries and cultures, introducing people to the world of film and stimulating artistic expression through this platform.
Where the island is small and bounded by water, it is everything but limited in its offer of high-quality independent and innovative films from all over the world.
Whether they’re documentaries, short films or feature lengths, there is an option for everyone. The festival respects every visitor, not only as a spectator, but also as an individual that carries their own story and background to the festival.
Besides enriching the island with five days of films, it’s also a week where you can wander around and experience music, master classes, talks, exhibitions, meet directors, actors and attend other special events, such as bario screenings, allowing you to explore film in various different ways. For more information about these activities, check out our “More Than Film” page, which can be found here.
Frequently we are asked: Where is Curaçao?
Curaçao is situated 43 miles (70km) off the North Coast of Venezuela. It is not only southern Caribbean diamond but it is a reward to any who are willing to make the trek to the heart of the Dutch Caribbean.
Curaçao is an autonomous country within the Kingdom of The Netherlands and, together with Aruba and Bonaire, it constitutes the “ABC” islands, or Leeward Antilles.
Located just 12° north of the Equator, Curaçao has a warm, sunny climate year round. The average temperature is about 27°C (81°F). Cooling trade winds blow constantly from the east, strongest in the spring months.
