  • IFFR Video Library holding most of the festival selection;
  • Limited admission to public screenings by reserving a ticket in advance;

CineMart accreditation gives access to all of the above, plus:

  • the possibility to request one to one meetings with the selected projects
  • CineMart networking events

*Kindly note that an accreditation request does not guarantee accreditation. CineMart is an invite only market, therefore requests received will be carefully scanned*

New applicants

Applications can be made online once the accreditation request form is published in November. In this form, we request companies to include a short and up to date company profile. Individuals should include their CV/filmography. If you specifically want to attend CineMart, please state the reason for your interest in the request.

CineMart is an invite only-market. The list of delegates attending CineMart is carefully reviewed every year in order to ensure that they can contribute to the projects in the CineMart selection and to maintain an informal yet professional atmosphere for doing business. Therefore the number of new accreditation requests granted for CineMart is limited.

Both CineMart and Industry 2017 badges cost €140.

Please note: accreditation passes are issued at the full discretion of International Film Festival Rotterdam and submission of a request does not guarantee accreditation.
