Tips for ticket sales

You’ve already taken a look at our programme, and you’re ready to join us at IFFR 2023! With tickets for IFFR Festival Specials opening January 12 from 12:00, and general ticket sales beginning 20:00 on January 20, make sure you’re IFFR ready with these tips.

Create or log in to your account on IFFR.com

Before you start browsing the programme, we recommend you create an account on IFFR.com (if you don’t have one already). To purchase tickets for online and in person screenings, it is necessary to create a personal account on IFFR.com. Purchasing a ticket without an account is possible by providing your name, email address and postal code.

If you already have an account, please note that we have introduced a new ticketing system which requires that you reset your password.

Check out the programme and choose your favourites

In addition, an account makes it easier to remember your programme preferences; you can already add favourites via the programme or the IFFR Film Finder and quickly access the films that you find interesting. 

The programme schedule will be published on 18 January, when you can create your personal Agenda with screenings of all your favourited films. The IFFR Programmabijlage (programme publication) can also be found in de Volkskrant on that day.

Get ready for tickets to drop!

During the festival there will not be a box-office at every location this year. At ‘de Doelen’ and LantarenVenster there is a ticket support desk for those that have challenges buying tickets online. At  the other screening locations there is a informationdesk where volunteers can help you to buy  your online tickets.

Make sure you are logged in to your IFFR account when the sale begins. There will be an online queue for these sales.

Sale of the new Festival Specials like the Blind Date screening, the opening film, the closing party, and more begin on January 12 from 12:00.

General ticket sales begin January 20 from 20:00.
