International Film Festival Rotterdam | Vrijkaartjes

Het International Film Festival Rotterdam staat voor de deur. Van 25 januari tot en met 5 februari 2023 keert het festival terug in de Rotterdamse bioscopen. En ook dit jaar programmeren ze wederom meerdere queer en LHBTQ+-films. Gaykrant geeft vrijkaarten weg. 

Hieronder vind je de titels en trailers van alle LHBTI+films die het festival geprogrammeerd heeft staan. Gaykrant geeft twee maal twee vrijkaarten weg. Stuur een mail naar en wie weet ga jij naar het vermaarde IFFR toe.
