IFFR Pro accreditation

Accreditations for IFFR 2021 will open in October 2020

International Film Festival Rotterdam celebrates worldwide independent, innovative and experimental filmmaking and film-related arts. The festival receives hundreds of filmmakers each year and as many as 3.000 film industry representatives.


Representatives from the film industry may apply for an IFFR Pro accreditation. CineMart is a by invitation only market, therefore requests received will be carefully assessed and granted only to delegates looking to contribute to the selected projects.
