Wildlife Film Festival Rotterdam

About WFFR

The Wildlife Film Festival Rotterdam (WFFR) is the only film festival for nature documentaries in the Netherlands and shows the most recent films from home and abroad. Since its first edition in 2015, WFFR has been taking place in the Rotterdam film theatre Cinerama, which was also the vibrant heart of the festival this year. The programme consists of beautiful documentaries showing the beauty of nature, as well as films showing the relationship between man and nature. During WFFR, visitors can talk to the many filmmakers present, attend special lectures and take part in interesting activities related to nature conservation.

In 2020 Wildlife Film Festival Rotterdam recognised outstanding achievements in 10 Flamingo Award categories.Entries automatically compete for either Best Film/Best Short Film and the Audience Award.

WFFR is delighted to announce the winners of the WFFR 2020 Flamingo Awards. All winners were announced during the online Flamingo Award Ceremony on Saturday the 31st of October 2020.

The Flamingo Award Ceremony was recorded at WFFR 2020. The ceremony was in the hands of Jannah Boerakker. Due to the corona rules, the prizes were not awarded in the auditorium but in a very special way; Live from the Rotterdam Zoo! Watch it here:
