Tiger Friends Unlimited

Sometimes just being Tiger Friends isn’t going to cut it. For all you ultimate IFFR fans out there who plan on gorging themselves on IFFR films, there’s the Tiger Friends Unlimited membership. This pass offers all the advantages of an Unlimited Pass, combined with the perks of being a Tiger Friend, like discounts, special screenings and priority online ticket sales. 

Thanks to its loyal, adventurous audience, IFFR is the largest admission-charging event in the Netherlands. This benefits the vulnerable, independent films on the festival's programme. Nevertheless, the festival appreciates additional financial support. In this day and age, personal contributions like the Tiger Friends Unlimited can literally make a world of difference.
