IFFR 2011 Full Schedule Online! Come and see folks...
Title says all: you can now check the complete screening schedule for this year's International Film Festival Rotterdam, about to start next Wednesday.

And here is the direct link:
The direct link.

Lots of nice surprises and a welcome return of Miike Takashi to the festival. The fact that there are multiple films by him ought to imply the man himself, no stranger to Rotterdam in the past, will make an appearance or two.

Happy browsing everyone!

I spy with my little eye:

Kaidan - Horror Classics,
Ochiai Masayuki,
Tsukamoto Shinya,
Lee Sang-Il,
Kore-Eda Hirokazu,

Japan, 2010

Horror usually makes us think of screams and blood, but Kaidan revolves around refined ghost stories from a forgotten Japan. The films are based on stories by the great writers in the genre. Four mysterious stories. Four outstanding filmmakers.

Cool! Has anyone seen this already?

How long did it take you to 'spy' that? Could they have designed a more incomprehensible, user-unfriendly layout?

To the IFFR's defense, the layout has been made with visitors in mind. Many people plan to only visit, say, a certain Friday Evening and this schedule quickly shows them what's on then.

For personal browsing I actually use the paper version, included in yesterdays newspapers. And if I want to see if a certain movie is playing this year, I check it in the A-Z list on the IFFR-site.

I have only glanced at the program, but there's at least one movie I MUST see: Pedicab Driver! Man, been wanting to see that one for years, waiting for a DVD etc. Now I get to see it in theatre. Coolest thing, EVER,

Gonna take some time and browse through the program, a to z style. Always a lot of work, because the movies / directors unknown to me far outnumber the ones I do know.

That's the festival's biggest claim to fame and its biggest curse: a high percentage of "unknowables".

While it makes buying tickets often a guessing game, sometimes you do discover diamonds. I remember going to the International premiere of "Let The Right One In", not knowing ANYTHING about it, and...
