Ibiza International Film Festival (Ibiza IFF) is an independent cinema event which takes place every spring on the Ibiza Island.

With the slogan The independent spirit, suggested by the Producer Jonathan Debin, this Festival promotes independent productions worldwide. Its award and symbol is the Falcó d'Or, representing an Eleonora's falcon, a species which nests freely on the cliffs of Ibiza and Formentera and which recalls The Maltese Falcon, by John Huston.

An International Jury will select three winners and three runners up.
