Support IFFR


Starting at €1,000 / year or €500 with a gift agreement

Deepen your commitment to the filmart you love so much and become a partner in IFFR’s vision! Visionaries are shaping the future of groundbreaking cinema in Rotterdam, the Netherlands and worldwide.

You help the festival to think outside the box and to redefine the future: to take risks with daring, urgent and sometimes a bit bold cinema; develop the new visual styles of up-and-coming talents; reach out and inspire children and young people; respond to and innovate with the ever-changing conditions of cinema and the world. 

From the Opening and Closing Parties to lunch with the directors, filmmakers and fellow visionaries, you will get unique behind-the-scenes access and meet the individuals who bring groundbreaking cinema to our screens and stages.

Choose a theme that suits you and allocate your contribution

  • Festival – programme contribute to visionary cinema and audiovisual art
  • Hubert Bals Fund – support independent film talent worldwide
  • IFFR Education – give children and youngsters the opportunity to broaden their horizons and stimulate autonomous thinking through film
  • IFFR Pro – help build an innovative international platform for independent filmmakers and producers and support the co-production market CineMart, IFFR Pro Immersive and talent development initiatives like Rotterdam Lab for emerging international producers.
