You are warmly invited to Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam 

The tenth AFFR takes place from 10 to 14 October 2018. This year the AFFR will again welcome dozens of international filmmakers and an expected 7500 fans of films, city and architecture from all over the world. The theme of AFFR 2018 is ‘Building Happiness’. We live in a period of economic boom. Construction, development and speculation are in full swing again, and resounding growth rates are the norm. The tourist industry is working at full capacity, bringing millions of tourists to cities with attractive architecture. Yet there is growing recognition that we cannot separate our concept of progress from its destructive side effects: climate change, social inequality, cultural conflict and terrorism. Is the prospect of engineered happiness and a liveable city reserved for a small proportion of the world’s population, or are there opportunities for all?
