BoostNL is the collaboration between the Netherlands Film Festival (NFF) and International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), offering projects in development and post-production an entirely tailor-made programme, starting at NFF in September and culminating at IFFR in January. By combining the two festivals’ forces and resources, and by molding the programme around the projects’ individual goals and wishes, BoostNL provides the selected participants with strong industry exposure and top-notch inspiration for the advancement of their projects.
