Publications & Advertising


Reach a large and varied audience by advertising online or in one of several publications issued by the International Film Festival Rotterdam.


In 2014 the festival was visited by 287.000 people and about 2.400 national and international film professionals (directors, producers, press). Spread over twelve days, 248 feature films (of which half were premieres) and 288 shorts were shown on 26 screens in Rotterdam.

The festival knows its wide and diverse audience very well, so you can be sure your advertisement is seen by the right target group. The IFFR visitor is between 26 and 65 years old (60% 26-45, as many men as women), higher educated and with a large interest in arts and culture. About 88% of the festival audience live in the urban agglomeration, and about 50% live within a fifteen kilometer reach of Rotterdam.

Adverting online
The website IFFR.com is the beating digital heart of the festival. The number of views starts increasing in the fall and reaches its peak with the announcement of the festival programme and the start of the festival itself. Between March 2013 and March 2014 the website had about 684.000 unique visitors and 7 million views.

From mid-December 2014 until and during the festival it is possible to advertise on the festival website in three set periods. A banner is placed in a loop with a maximum of three other banners, in the right section on the website.

Moreover, as of IFFR 2014, it is possible to put advertisements in the newsletter of IFFR, the Tiger Alert. This newsletter appears every two to four weeks and is full of news about the festival and exclusive updates from the festival frontline. During the festival, the Tiger Alert is sent out every day. Through a banner in this newsletter, your message is sent to over 17.000 subscribers.
