Alongside income generated by ticket sales, IFFR is dependent on additional funding and therefore cooperates with various partners, funds and individuals, the main sources that help realise an annual festival. You too can support IFFR, both as an organisation and as an individual. For example, you may enter into a partnership or join the Tiger Business Lounge or become a Tiger Member.

Not all English-language films will have subtitles. You can find this information on the filmpage of the film if this is not the case.
