The Independent Film Network (IFN) is an Internet portal for independent filmmaking created in 2000. It is a project of La Fàbica de Cinema Alternatiu in collaboration with the Centre for Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB). Throughout the year the IFN brings together information on the Festival's activities (curating touring programmes, our presence at round tables, seminars) and on our members' film-related activities: festivals, awards, film premieres, workshops, etc).

The website also contains a database of people we have met in previous editions of the Festival, with links to other websites related to production, promotion, distribution, festivals, learning, seeing and listening.

During the Festival itself, the IFN offers producers, distributors, programmers and exhibitors a space to view the works being screened.
