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 become a Tiger Member or a Pioneer.

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.

The English version of the Programme Guide can be picked up at all festival locations during the festival and can be downloaded from IFFR.com from January 18 onwards. 

In 2024 the printed version of the Dutch Programme Guide will not be distributed by the Volkskrant anymore. The Programme Guide can be downloaded from IFFR.com and a printed version will be spread across the Netherlands by our couriers in cinemas, theaters and cultural institutions in Rotterdam, Amsterdam, The Hague, Utrecht and Eindhoven.

That is correct. The Volkskrant is not distributing the IFFR Programme Guide anymore. The Programme Guide will be available in the digital newspaper only on January 13, together with an editorial piece. The Programme Guide can be downloaded from IFFR.com and will be spread across the Netherlands by our couriers in cinemas, theater and cultural institutions in Amsterdam, The Hague, Utrecht. And can be found at all festival locations during the festival.
