IFFR Train Experience

Wed 24 January up until Sun 4 February

This year, your IFFR adventure can once again start in the train. The IFFR Train Experience launched last year – including popcorn and bellboy – is back! This time again, you can enjoy festival films in the train carriage specially transformed into a red velvet cinema; however this year, you can also watch short IFFR-films through IFFR Unleashed in the rest of the train on your laptop, tablet or smartphone. During the festival, the IFFR train will run between Amsterdam, Utrecht, The Hague, Eindhoven and Rotterdam.

The IFFR Train Experience short film selection is offered by IFFR Unleashed. With IFFR Unleashed, you can watch IFFR films all year round, wherever and whenever you like. New films will be released every month, along with interviews and masterclasses selected by the IFFR programmers.

For independent filmmakers, IFFR Unleashed is a platform through which they can make their films available all year round to a worldwide, online audience. The rights holders also get fifty percent of the income. See iffr.com/unleashed for more information on the Online Video Platform for independent cinema.
