Tiger Members


What are the differences between the old Tiger Friends Memberships and the new Tiger Membership?

First, the most important difference: We’ve disconnected the charity aspect from the Tiger Membership. This means the regular Tiger Members now pay €15 less than the former Tiger Friends. In this new set-up, it’s all about the discount and the advantages.

Tiger Members receive (among other things) a €3 discount on tickets and get priority access to ticket sales. They can choose to add a discounted year-long subscription to IFFR Unleashed. Real film omnivores become Tiger Member Supreme. They can purchase an unlimited number of tickets for €0 and receive two invitations for the opening night alongside a number of other benefits ensuring a completely carefree festival experience (including a year-long subscription to IFFR Unleashed and priority access to ticket sales).

All types of Tiger Members receive a personal pass. Purchased tickets will automatically be loaded onto the pass which will be scanned upon entering the film screenings.

What are Tiger Members?

Tiger Members are the biggest fans of the festival. They are the first to gain access to the online ticket sales, receive a €3 discount on regular festival tickets, receive a discount on Masterclasses & Talks and make use of numerous other benefits during the festival. The membership costs €35 per year and can be upgraded to a Tiger Membership with IFFR Unleashed at any time or - if you want even more - the Tiger Membership Supreme.

You can buy one ticket per performance at the Tiger Member rate and extra tickets at regular, CJP, MBO or student rates (max. 20).

Can I also buy tickets for other Tiger Members?

Yes, you can buy tickets for another Tiger Member, no matter whether the other Tiger Member has a regular Tiger Membership, a Tiger Membership with IFFR Unleashed, or a Tiger Membership Supreme. Through the 'Share tickets' option you can add friends to your connections in your personal account and then purchase tickets for other Tiger Members, while retaining their privileges. Read below on how exactly you can do that.

These steps apply whether the other Tiger Member has a regular Tiger Membership, a Tiger Membership with IFFR Unleashed, or a Tiger Membership Supreme. Log in to your account (at the top right of this website).

How do I buy tickets for another Tiger Member?

These steps apply whether the other Tiger Member has a regular Tiger Membership, a Tiger Membership with IFFR Unleashed, or a Tiger Membership Supreme. 

Step 1
First add the Tiger Member to your connections in your personal account. How exactly you can do this, you can read above at 'How do I add another Tiger Member to my connections in my personal account?'

Step 2
Find the movie you want to watch together and click on 'Buy tickets'. Select the desired number of tickets for the 'Tiger Member' price type. If you have accidentally chosen a different price type, no problem. All tickets can be modified in the shopping cart.

Pay attention! You can only buy a ticket for a friend at the price type associated with his / her specific membership. So if your friend has a Tiger Member Supreme-pass, a ticket for the 'Tiger Membership Supreme' rate must be selected.

Step 3
In your shopping basket, you can see an overview of your order. There you can assign tickets to your connectionss. You probably will now see error messages in your shopping basket, because you still have to assign the tickets to your desired connection.

To assign tickets to your connections, click on the person icon for the relevant performance. The order opens, and here you can adjust for whom the ticket is intended.

Pay attention! If you do not see the person icon, then you do not have a connection yet and you can not order tickets for another Tiger Member.

If the error message does not disappear, but you see the name of your connection in the message now, he / she already has a ticket for this movie in his / her name. You can remove or buy the ticket you reserved from the shopping cart for another Tiger Member or at a different rate.

When all notifications are gone, you are ready to complete your order. And do not worry: when you're in the shopping cart, you can take your time. Every time you add or change something in the shopping cart, the time to pay will be extended.

Step 4
After payment you will receive a confirmation of your purchase in your mailbox. Within your personal account you can also find the order by clicking on 'Tickets'. Here you are also able to see who you bought a ticket for. The person for whom you bought a ticket will also see this ticket in his / her own account. Pay attention! This person will not receive a confirmation mail of your purchase.
All tickets that you purchase for other Tiger Members are loaded on the card of the person for whom you bought them. Your own tickets will be loaded on your pass.
