Press Accreditation

The restrictions set out by the recently updated Infection Protection Act make the planning of the Berlinale Summer Special (June 9 to 20) even more challenging.

The Berlinale now wants to explore the possibility of an all-outdoor event. A final decision regarding the Summer Special and access for the press will be made beginning of May. Everyone's health and curbing the development of the pandemic is, of course, the top priority when making any considerations.

Press access to events and screening opportunities will be made available for the Berlinale Summer Special from June 9 to 20 in Berlin. There will be no online accreditation process (there is no fee), and the conditions for press participation will be announced beginning of May. We ask for your understanding that we cannot take pre-registrations at the moment.

Please note: Press accreditations issued for the Industry Event in March are not valid for the Berlinale Summer Special.
