Sponsors & Partners

A festival on the scale of IFFR cannot exist without the enthusiasm and commitment of our partners and financiers.

Festivals such as IFFR exert a great influence on the cultural climate of a city. During the twelve days of the festival, Rotterdam is a place where people can meet – from young to old, international film professional to local entrepreneur, veteran film-lover to day tripper.

We are able to hold such a large, diverse and welcoming festival each year thanks to our collaboration with partners both in the Netherlands and abroad. For example, we work with cinemas throughout Europe on the live streaming of festival films in our IFFR Live programme, and we organise Curaçao IFFR together with main sponsor United Foundation. Up to 2018, Hivos is also a partner and gives its name to our flagship competition and film award: the Hivos Tiger Awards.And together with the Volkskrant newspaper, we organise the renowned Volkskrantdag viewing day, which attracts yearly thousands of visitors to the festival.

And this is just a few of the collaborations we develop together with our partners. As a company, you can raise your brand’s profile, present new products, invest in customer relations or come into contact with interesting commercial and international cultural networks. Our priority is always to ensure a win-win-win situation: for the festival, its visitors and for our partners.

There are many ways in which you can get involved. For further information, contact Lotte Hemme, Mecenaat & Business Development, on T +31 (0)10 8909090

For their leadership support, we would like to acknowledge our current main partners.
