In January IFFR establishes a meeting place for creatives, artists, filmmakers and other professionals. IFFR is happy to facilitate the encounter of great minds and the exchange of ideas. It is an excellent place for students to enter the professional realm en get inspired. There are multiple programmes in which students can be introduced to the festival.

IFFR Academy

IFFR Academy is renewed! This year IFFR not only presents an exclusive programme for students but also offers an IFFR Academy accreditation by which students are able to attend every film, masterclass and exhibition of the festival. IFFR Academy allows students to get acquainted with the festival and its guests and at the same time broadens their cultural horizons.
