IFC Films has released over 900 films since they started in 1999. Their streaming platform, IFC Films Unlimited is the home to all of these films.
The streamer is owned by AMC Networks and is one of the brands you can find in the bundled streaming offer AMC Plus.
IFC Films Unlimited offers mainly independent dramas, art house films, documentaries and foreign films which were released by them in their 22 years of existence.
For now, it is only available via subscription to viewers in the United States and Canada.
You can subscribe in a variety of ways depending on your device or TV provider.
- Apple TV
- Prime Video channels
- YouTube TV
- Sling TV
- The Roku Channel
While IFC Films Unlimited has a website, you cannot sign up for a free trial directly through them like the other AMC brands like Shudder & Sundance Now.
IFC Films Unlimited offers a free trial of 7 days so that you can evaluate their service after which you’ll pay just $5.99/month. A credit card is required to take the free trial but it isn’t charged until the trial is over.
Below, I’ll show you the two best ways in which you can subscribe to IFC Films Unlimited and get a 7 day free trial. You will even be able to take each trial back to back, extending your free trial period to at least 14 days!
How To Start IFC Films Unlimited Free Trial
Starting your IFC Films Unlimited free 7 day trial is easy.
You have a number of choices and I’ll show you the two easiest and surest ways to start your free trial. Some TV providers only allow you to add the channel for the subscription cost and won’t give a trial.
Here, I’ll show you how to start with these two methods:
- Add IFC Films Unlimited on Prime Video channels
- Get the AMC+ bundled subscription with 7 day free trial
Start Your Free Trial Through Amazon’s Prime Video Channels
IFC Films Unlimited is just one of more than 150 channels available to Prime and Prime Video subscribers.
Prime members get benefits such as free 2 day shipping on millions of items available on Amazon and unlimited access to watch thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Video.
You can add premium channels like Paramount+, Starz, Showtime and more and they all come with a free 7 day trial.

You’ll be able to start watching immediately and have access to IFC Films Unlimited content through Prime Video.
Alternatively, you could subscribe to the AMC+ channel and get the same 7 day free trial. This would allow you to get full access to IFC Films Unlimited content and content from the other channels bundled into AMC+.
I’ll explain below.
Get More With an AMC+ 7 Day Free Trial
IFC Films Unlimited is owned by AMC Networks along with some other brands. AMC has their own streaming offer known as AMC Plus.
With AMC+, you can subscribe to get full access to Shudder, Sundance Now and content from AMC, BBC America and The Walking Dead Universe.
So you have an option to subscribe to either IFC Films Unlimited for $5.99/month and get just content from IFC or subscribe to AMC+ for $8.99/month and get full access plus even more content.
You can learn more about subscribing to AMC+ here.
Price After IFC Films Unlimited Free Trial?
When you sign up for IFC Films Unlimited’s free trial, they let you know that you’ll be billed $5.99/month after the trial ends.
There is no yearly subscription fee and you’re billed by whatever service you choose to subscribe to IFC Films Unlimited.

What’s Showing on IFC Films Unlimited?
There are no TV shows on IFC Films Unlimited, only movies as the name suggests.
IFC Films started releasing films in 1999 with the drama Spring Forward. They’ve released over 900 films to date with independent dramas through IFC Films, documentaries and some foreign films under the Sundance Selects label and genre films (horror, sci-fi, action, erotic art house and thrillers) under the IFC Midnight label.

Should You Subscribe To IFC Films Unlimited?
IFC Films Unlimited is a good offering if you appreciate under the radar films and independent dramas and thrillers rather than big budget Hollywood blockbusters.
I especially like the idea of subscribing through AMC Plus whether on Amazon Prime Video or directly through their website. This way you get not only IFC offerings but documentaries and TV series from Sundance Now, horror movies from Shudder and everything AMC and BBC America offers.
The good thing is that you get 7 days to decide whether or not you would like to keep going with IFC Films Unlimited.
