International Film Festival Rotterdam

Copywriting / Communications / Community Management


Working year-round at International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), I make sure the festival’s stories connect with its many audiences. That’s everyone from film-anoraks, industry professionals and filmmakers, to partygoers or festival first-timers.

I take care of editorial planning and communications across a suite of digital channels and the day-to-day direction and strategy of social media. Channels: Facebook, Instagram*, Twitter, YouTube, App (including the festival’s own Film Finder tool), IFFR Your Tab (a Chrome and Firefox extension), IFFR Unleashed (VOD) and newsletters.

*Helped to grow IFFR’s Instagram following by 60% in my first 6 months.

  • Editorial and content planning for

  • Filmmaker interviews
