During IFFR 2023, films from the programme (dependent on rights' holder discretion) were made available to watch online for accredited guests via their regular film pages on IFFR.com. The online video library is intended for those visiting the festival onsite – access to online screenings is geoblocked to Rotterdam.  


Protecting the work of artists against illegal use or copying is vital for a healthy creative business industry. IFFR's conditions for accessing online content are outlined in this document. Please read it carefully.

Access is given under strict confidentiality: content, or parts thereof, may not be shared, accessed, downloaded, released, uploaded, copied, shown or otherwise be made known to anyone other than those authorised by IFFR.

We recently changed our online account environment. For security reasons, the password of your existing IFFR account was not migrated to the new system, meaning you have to update your password in order to access your account and to register for your accreditation. We cannot complete this set-up on your behalf. If you continue to encounter difficulties, please contact [email protected]
