Due to developments regarding the Coronavirus, Fundashon Bon Intenshon and International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) have unfortunately decided to cancel the upcoming edition of Curaçao IFFR (CIFFR). It is the first time that CIFFR has been canceled since the first edition in 2012.
In recent days, there has been an unexpectedly rapid spread of the Coronavirus worldwide (Covid-19). It is not clear at this stage to what extent dissemination continues and what consequences this may have for public health.
Events where larger groups of people are expected are not recommended by the World Health Organization and RIVM because they may involve an increased risk of spreading the virus. The board of Fundashon Bon Intenshon and of IFFR follow this policy.
We find it very unfortunate for our loyal audience, all guests; local businesses; and for the partners working with CIFFR, that the festival cannot take place due to these unforeseen circumstances.
