IDFA x Spaces: free workspaces available for all guests during IDFA 2019

    During IDFA 2019 we are pleased to offer all our accredited guests with free access to personal workspaces across Amsterdam thanks to our new partnership with Spaces. This Amsterdam-born company provides freelancers, entrepreneurs, and companies with an inspirational place to work. In other words, it’s the ideal opportunity for IDFA filmmakers and industry professionals to have the space to connect, work on their ideas, and keep their projects ticking during the festival.

    Spaces has locations all over Amsterdam, including in the city center alongside the canals. Many are only a short walk from most IDFA venues, and all are easy to reach by public transport or car and take less than 30 minutes from Schiphol Airport. From November 20 till December 1, all IDFA accredited guests have free, personal access to Spaces locations between 8:00 and 18:00 hrs.
