lovers who can't make it to Rotterdam this year, can sample a selection of films from the comfort of their couch.

Festival Scope has teamed up with International Film Festival Rotterdam to screen 15 films online between now and February 24.

Films in the line-up includes the world premiere of Your Bones And Your Eyes by Caetano Gotardo - who also stars - and collaborative work The Seven Last Words, inspired by Franz Joseph Haydn's The Last Seven Years Of Our Saviour On The Cross, by multidisciplinary directors Kaveh Nabatian, Ariane Lorrain, Sophie Goyette, Juan Andrés Arango, Sophie Deraspe, Karl Lemieux, Caroline Monnet.

The line-up also includes films that have featured at other festivals, including Hans Hurch tribute Introduzione all'Oscuro and Sri Lankan drama House Of My Fathers, which tracks a man and woman's attempts to break an infertility curse that has struck their feuding villages.

Films cost 4€ each or 2€ if you opt for a Festival Pass of 5 or more films. Only 200 tickets are available per film on a first-come first-served basis.
