IFFR > Trainee Programme for Young Film Critics (The Netherlands)

For the 21st time, International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) welcomes young critics from all over the world to apply for the IFFR Young Film Critics traineeship, taking place during IFFR's 49th edition (January 22 - February 2, 2020). Critics under the age of 30 can apply for this programme in which IFFR supports a new generation of young and upcoming critics. The organisers are looking for journalistic talent in its broadest sense; from writers, to video essayists, to radio and tv makers, and podcast talents. 

What is expected:

  • Complimentary IFFR 2019 press accreditation

  • Budget hotel accommodation in Rotterdam

  • A partial refund of travel costs when traveling from outside Europe

  • A full schedule. IFFR aims at making trainees fully integral to the festival and lets them participate in the delivery of daily festival outlets. The trainees will form a team, hosted by the IFFR Press Office and the festival editorial staff. You get to explore all aspects of IFFR (screenings, exhibitions, Q&A sessions, masterclasses and talks, debates, film industry conferences) as part of the programme and to cover for your own media.

  • If your participation is successful and you have published reports that meet IFFR’s standards (both in quality and quantity), you get the opportunity to visit the next edition of the festival as an accredited journalist.

Deadline: 1 October 2019
