Tips for ticket sales and online screenings
Access to IFFR online screenings works differently than you are used to at a physical festival. For example, you do not have to show a ticket at the door, but you have to log in with the account that you used when purchasing the tickets. Also, you don't have to purchase a ticket for everyone of your fellow film enthusiasts if they want to join. In short: an online festival visit takes some time getting used to. These are the steps you need to take to watch an online programme.
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). Tickets you have purchased are linked to your personal account, and you need to be logged into your account to find the link to the stream. In addition, an account makes it easier to remember your programme preferences: you can already favourites via the programme page or the IFFR Film Finder and quickly find back the films you find interesting.
In advance of ticket sales: Favourite films and add screenings to your Agenda
On January 20 the IFFR Programmabijlage will be published in de Volkskrant and in de Volkskrant app.
Book your tickets for on demand screenings
Ticket sales begin on Friday, 21 January at 20:00 (CET). Tiger Members can purchase tickets one day earlier. A ticket for an on-demand screening costs € 8.50. Various discounts are available. Tickets for on demand can be bought until Sunday 6 February at 20:55.
Click the red ‘tickets’ button for the on demand screening of your choice. The ticket will now be placed in your shopping cart. If you have selected all the tickets you are interested in, you can complete your purchase in one go. IFFR tickets in the bag!
You can only purchase one ticket for a film screening per IFFR account. Even when you’re not watching alone, one ticket provides you access to watch the film together on one screen – unlike when you buy tickets per seat in a cinema.
How to stream the film
To access the film screening, you do not need an e-ticket. Tickets for on demand screenings you have purchased are linked to your personal account. Log into your account and go to your Agenda to find the link to the stream as soon as it is available. Find all your screenings in the Agenda, where you can access the stream using the yellow ‘Watch now’ button. You can also access the screening by navigating to the film page – search the film title on IFFR.com to find the film or event. The red ‘tickets’ button has now been replaced by a yellow button which will give you access to the stream.
When can I start watching the film?
You can start an on-demand programme yourself at any time within festival period. Please note: After you start the movie, you have 24 hours to watch the movie (within the festival period). If you start the film just before the end of this period, you can watch it, but you cannot leave the stream or refresh your browser. The available period expires while you are watching.
