Get ready for IFFR 2023

17 January 2023

From IFFR Your Tab, to the IFFR App, the Filmfinder, your favourited films, your agenda, merchandise, trailers, and FAQs – there’s a lot you might want to know before IFFR begins! In this blog, we’ll give you our insider tips so you can make the most of the festival.

Find films for you

Before you start browsing the programme, we recommend you create an account on (if you don’t have one already). To purchase tickets for in person screenings or on demand, it is most convenient to create a personal account on Purchasing a ticket without an account is possible by providing your name, email address and postal code.

Favourite films

An account makes it easier to remember the films you’ve highlighted from the programme; you can already add favourites via the programme and quickly access the films that you find interesting. 

Your Agenda

The programme schedule will be published from 18 January, when you can create your personal Agenda with screenings of all your favourited films. The IFFR Programmabijlage (programme publication) can also be found in de Volkskrant on that day.
