Download the IDFA app now

Publication date: 5 November 2012
Once again this year, a free IDFA app is available that gives you all the festival information in your hand – all the time! The app contains the film program, descriptions of all the films by title, program section, screening date and location. Also all the latest news, alerts and an overview of all events for which there are still tickets.

A new feature this year is that the app synchronizes with your MyIDFA account. So you don’t need to print out tickets bought online – they will appear in the app on your telephone under MyTickets. So all you need do is show your phone at the door.

The app can be downloaded for free from the App Store and from the Android Market. Just search for IDFA 2012.
