<strong>Weblog Gertjan Zuilhof</strong>
<strong>Weblog Ludmila Cvikova</strong>
Travel along with the International Film Festival Rotterdam's programmers and participants of the IFFR Trainee Project for Young Film Critics. The programmers report on the research trips, their observations on remarkable films, meetings with filmmakers and producers in different parts of the world - nearby or far away.

    Weblog Gertjan Zuilhof
  Over the past years, festival programmer Gertjan Zuilhof has written weblogs in which he shares his thoughts and experiences while curating his thematic programme sections for the International Film Festival Rotterdam.
His latest blog contains notes and travel diaries during the research on a program on African cinema with the slightly paradoxical title 'Forget Africa', which was screened at the 39th edition of the International Film Festival Rotterdam 2010. Previously he wrote the blog  'A Programmer's Chronicles'. 
    Weblog Ludmila Cvikova
  Festival programmer Ludmila Cvikova keeps a close watch for the International Film Festival Rotterdam on the independent film production in Middle- and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and the Arabic world. A vast territory in which she travels to meet filmmakers personally, attend film events and festivals.
In her latest blog entry, Ludmila Cvikova reports about her visit to the famous filmmaker and artist Jan Svankmajer in his studio in the Czech Republic.
