- What is IFFR's Code of Conduct?
At International Film Festival Rotterdam, we represent the strength and impact of independent film, filmmakers and film-related art.
In our work together, we each contribute to a culture that is built on foundations of mutual respect and dignity. For IFFR respect means welcoming and appreciating everyone around us — from our colleagues to our business partners to our guests — as well as creating an environment where everyone has the freedom to express him or herself, without fear of harassment, intimidation, discrimination, sexism, or other disrespectful behaviour.
We reserve the right to revoke, without notice or refund, credentials or access to festival events and venues for those who engage in such conduct.
If you have been involved of have witnessed something that violates this code we ask that you contact us as [email protected]
If you prefer to speak to an outside organisation you may also contact Slachtofferhulp Nederland at 088-7460 000 or 0900-0101
For emergencies, immediately dial 1-1-2.
