Sara Cwynar’s film Rose Gold has been selected for the Ammodo Tiger Short Competition at the International Film Festival Rotterdam.
International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) has always celebrated the ways in which art and film can intersect. It has incorporated exhibitions, performances and screenings of artist film and video on the cinema screen as part of its activity for many years. For the festival’s 47th edition this year, artists’ moving images take a more central position than ever.
The 2018 edition presents 22 films in the Ammodo Tiger Short Competition, which includes new works by Artur Żmijewski, Yto Barrada, Hiwa K, Zhou Tao, Korakrit Arunanondchai, Mel O’Callaghan, Maeve Brennan, Monira Al Qadiri, Adrian Paci, Maryam Tafakory, Nazlı Dinçel, Daniel Jacoby & Araki Yu, Tobias Zielony, Isabelle Tollenaere, Sara Cwynar, Rainer Kohlberger, Manuel Knapp and Heather Phillipson. Three award-winners will be selected by a jury of three, comprised of Chinese filmmaker Ying Liang, Dutch graphic designer Mieke Gerritzen and Kenyan filmmaker Jim Chuchu, founder of The Nest Collective.
Now in its 13th year, the competition forms a central part of IFFR Short Film, a unique showcase of artists’ moving image and experimental film for works under 65 minutes, which takes place over the first weekend of the festival on January 25-29. Other artists represented in this section include Jon Rafman, Sara Magenheimer, Rosa Barba, Jonna Kina, Prapat Jiwarangsan, Agnieszka Polska, Solveig Suess, Stephanie Comliang, Anna Jermolaewa and Wojciech Bąkowski.
