There are three Canon Tiger Awards for Short Films up for grabs, each consisting of a €3,000 cash prize plus a professional digital video camera made available by Canon. The awards will be presented on Sunday 31 January at 9 p.m. in LantarenVenster.

Jury Tiger Awards Competition for Short Films
The jury for the Tiger Awards Competition for Short Films is made up of British artist, filmmaker and double winner of this award, Ben Rivers; politically committed artist, writer and filmmaker Naeem Mohaiemen from Bangladesh; and Mieke Bernink, professor on the Master’s degree course at the Netherlands Film Academy.
IFFR is a prominent showcase for short and medium-length films (45 to 65 minutes), and the programme is one of the most extensive of its kind in Europe. This year, the films can be found across the festival’s programme and IFFR’s four new sections: Bright Future, Voices, Deep Focus and Perspectives. The full programme of more than 150 films screens from Monday 28 January through Monday 1 February in LantarenVenster. On 6 February this is also the venue for the Short Film marathon, a 6-hour screening of all the highlights of the programme.
This is Where Reconstruction Starts and Throwing Shadows
This year, the IFFR programme also encompasses the elements Throwing Shadows and This is Where Reconstruction Starts. Throwing Shadows is a rare collection of psychedelic multi-projection films from Japan in the 1960s and ’70s, ranging from animations to newsreel montages. In This is Where Reconstruction Starts, IFFR takes on the role of co-producer, alongside its screening role. Within the context of the events marking 75 years of post-war reconstruction in Rotterdam, IFFR asked six makers from all over the world to make a cinematic reflection on the theme of "reconstruction" – the reconstruction of a city that is now home to 175 different nationalities.

sound//vision is the successor to IFFR’s popular Mind The Gap Nights. The sound//vision programmes always focus on innovative, experimental, adventurous audio-visual culture. The evenings present cooperations between musicians, video artists, filmmakers and other artists in the area of sound and vision. The late night programme takes place in the WORM venue on four successive nights during the festival, from Thursday 28 through Sunday 31 January 2016. For further information and tickets see:
For four decades, IFFR has proudly developed and presented auteur cinema by helping filmmakers reach the broadest possible audiences. The festival is known around the world for its individual, innovative programming, with particular attention to talented new filmmakers. Quality films from all over the world are presented in Rotterdam to a large, international audience with the aim of inspiring and broadening horizons.
IFFR is one of the biggest cultural events in the Netherlands, and one of the biggest audience-oriented film festivals in the world. The 45th IFFR will take place from Wednesday, 27 January to Sunday, 7 February 2016. For twelve days, the latest feature films, documentaries, short films, exhibitions, performances, talkshows and debates make Rotterdam an exciting, global capital city of film. Official ticket sales start on Friday, 22 January. For more information, see
