Roffa Mon Amour - About

It all started with a huge fondness for arthouse cinema and a lacking of diverse programming in Rotterdam which brought Charlotte van Zanten en Lisa Smith together in 2012. Ever since they have supported world cinema.

“Film can change cultural discourse. A film can be seen as entertainment, as propaganda or as an art form. Young filmmakers prove to us every time that they want to entertain, but also that they want bring across a message. In only 90 minutes you can be taken away to a subtropical Brazilian island, get involved in political intrigue, or wonder the streets of Teheran where you get caught in a long, surrealistic night. Films travel. They’ll make you laugh and cry and most importantly: think.”
