Submit Your Film

Each year WFFR organises a film competition in which filmmakers from anywhere in the world can participate. WFFR invites (independent) filmmakers, production companies, distributors or broadcasters to submit their latest film(s). This year WFFR will be held from 4th – 9th October 2022. The submission deadline is 15th April 2022.

WFFR focuses on the screening of wildlife, conservation and environmental films & documentaries to demonstrate the beauty of nature and to raise awareness about the collective responsibility we have to maintain it.

WFFR is also a meeting place for the wildlife film industry in The Netherlands. We are known for a friendly and informal atmosphere where all our guests feel at home. Here you can catch-up with other film professionals, participate in daily talks/q&a’s and meet the Dutch audience.

The festival program offers 120+ public screenings and events at Cinerama Movie Theatre that is located downtown Rotterdam. WFFR also takes place online from 5 – 30 October 2022 (geoblocked for The Netherlands only).
