Also included are masterclasses, a VR lounge, shorts programmes and film classics. For those who cannot choose, there is a Best of AFFR on Sunday.

AFFR 2022 opens with the world premiere of Best in the World by Hans Christian Post, a revealing look beyond the photogenic image of Copenhagen, on Wednesday 5 October at Theater Zuidplein. Over the next four days, the festival explore various subjects through a series of programmed themes that centre on critically selected films and documentaries, complemented by insightful introductions and lively debates, all from festival venue at LantarenVenster. AFFR not only explores the relationship between film, architecture and the city, but also looks at the world at large.
