Jean-Luc Godard, Philippe Parreno and Charlotte Pryce headline Rotterdam Film Festival
IFFR has invited LA-based and London-born short-filmmaker Charlotte Pryce to present a collection of her hypnotic 16mm shorts, including the world premiere of Pwdre Ser (the rot of the stars), as well as two mesmerising magic lantern performances that have never been shown outside California.


ROTTERDAM.- Art Directions, the art programme for the 2019 International Film Festival Rotterdam features a wide-ranging programme of art installations, exhibitions and performances including a re-working of Jean-Luc Godard latest film, a major new work by Philippe Parreno and a world premiere by LA-based Charlotte Pryce.

French artist Philippe Parreno will present his new work entitled No More Reality (1988-2018). This feature-length film combines 20 years of new, existing and re-edited footage to create a 'film of films'. Screened in the classical halls of Pathé in the centre of Rotterdam, Parreno proposes a 'seance of cinema' reintroducing the magic and rituals of cinema back to this historic location.

Jean-Luc Godard will present his latest film, Le livre d’image, in the way he originally intended: in a specially designed, intimate setting that reflects his home studio – Persian rugs included. And Finnish artist Mika Taanila will present two art projects: his minimalist work My Silence (On Paper) (2015) and Film Reader (2017), a small library of film books which Taanila has cut up or otherwise manipulated in violent, yet transformative ways.

IFFR has invited LA-based and London-born short-filmmaker Charlotte Pryce to present a collection of her hypnotic 16mm shorts, including the world premiere of Pwdre Ser (the rot of the stars), as well as two mesmerising magic lantern performances that have never been shown outside California.

IFFR 2019 revisits Georgian-Armenian filmmaker Sergei Parajanov’s masterpieceThe Colour of Pomegranates (1969). Film researcher and restoration specialist Daniel Bird will present hours of never-before-seen outtakes from this classic film in a unique, thought-provoking setting, highlighting Parajanov’s working process, censorship decisions of the time and issues of film ownership.

Festival director Bero Beyer: “Our festival programme testifies to the power of the image in its broadest sense. That means it’s only natural for us to invite filmmakers and visual artists alike, as well as those creators who allow these worlds to merge. Our Art Directions programme runs through the entire festival and features both works by major names in art and exciting new discoveries.”

IFFR 2018 saw the launch of Frameworks, a platform where important figures in the art world are each invited to nominate an upcoming artist. Each protégé receives a €10,000 grant to complete a single-screen audiovisual work which will premiere at IFFR. In the context of Frameworks 2019, Philippe Parreno and Jean-Luc Godard will each select a young artist. The Frameworks programme is supported by Stichting Stokroos.

IFFR is one of the largest cultural events in the Netherlands and one of the biggest audience-oriented film festivals in the world, offering a world-class line-up of fiction and documentary feature films, short films, exhibitions, performances, masterclasses and talkshows. IFFR actively supports new and adventurous filmmaking talent through numerous industry initiatives including co-production market CineMart, through the BoostNL and Propellor initiatives, its Hubert Bals Fund and Rotterdam Lab. IFFR's 48th edition takes place from Wednesday 23 January to Sunday 3 February 2019.
