Welcome to the Accreditation

The current COVID-19 ordinance means accreditation is only possible for people who have been vaccinated or have recovered from the illness. The Berlinale is taking place as a ‘2G’ event.

Official requirements may change according to the epidemic situation. All accredited persons are requested to take personal responsibility for familiarising themselves with the most up-to-date hygiene rules and checking whether they meet the current requirements.

The 72nd Berlin International Film Festival will take place from February 10 to 20, 2022 as an in-person event. The European Film Market (February 10-17, 2022), the Berlinale Co-Production Market (February 12-16, 2022), Berlinale Talents (February 12-17, 2022) and the World Cinema Fund will focus on on-site offerings. They will furthermore provide online formats.

As a professional, you can apply for Festival Accreditation and/or an (Online) Market Badge. Students can request a Student Accreditation via their university.

At the 72nd Berlinale, visitors with festival, press or student accreditation can only access festival screenings and the public talks at Berlinale Talents by booking an online ticket in advance.

Further detailed information on Accreditation can be found in the FAQ and on the respective pages for

The health of all guests and festival staff is a focus of the planning of the 72nd Berlinale. The COVID-19 Regulations at the festival and EFM are designed to ensure the safe participation of all guests.

Before applying, you have to agree to the Code of Conduct and Anti-Discrimination Statement and the General Conditions of Participation.

The Berlinale offers a variety of sections, programmes, events, discussions and opportunities for encounters and professional exchange.

Each year, around 400 films of all genres, lengths and formats are screened in the festival’s various sections and special presentations. To access many of the opportunities on offer at the Berlinale, please apply for festival accreditation.

The European Film Market is returning from February 10 to 17, 2022 with its exhibition spaces in the Gropius Bau and Marriott Hotel and a large number of hybrid "EFM Industry Sessions". Market screenings will take place in the nearby cinemas while online screenings will be hosted on the EFM website. A Market Badge is required for in-person participation in the EFM in Berlin. Those unable to attend in person can apply for an Online Market Badge.

In 2022, the Berlinale Co-Production Market is expanding its on-site events to include more digital access so that participants not travelling to Berlin can follow the majority of the programme online. Please note: purchasing an accreditation does not guarantee full participation (including pitching and networking events) in the Berlinale Co-Production Market. You must apply for the separate selection process in good time. You can find more information on the Berlinale Co-Production Market website.

For its 20th edition, Berlinale Talents is planning a programme of publicly accessible talks and discussions in the HAU Hebbel am Ufer theatres, supplemented by live-streaming and interactive events. A separate application process is required for full participation in the Berlinale Talents programme.

The annual WCF Day – the think tank of the World Cinema Fund – is scheduled to take place as a hybrid event during the 2022 Berlinale.
