Welcome to the Accreditation

The 2021 Berlinale is once again committed to being a place for exchange and encounters. The festival is preparing to go ahead in its physical form, while the European Film Market (EFM) will be a hybrid online/physical event. To protect the health of all our festival participants, we are developing and implementing hygiene and safety measures which will make it possible for the Berlinale to go ahead according to the latest COVID-19 regulations.

You can apply for an accreditation as an industry professional, a representative of the press or a student. Before applying, please carefully read the participation guidelines and COVID-19 regulations. Information about the various requirements and types of access can be found on the respective web pages:
