IFFR Pro accreditation

Accreditation for IFFR 2021 is now open. 

Request form

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 and with a track record of collaboration on, or with, international co-productions. Therefore the number of new accreditations granted for CineMart is limited.
