Badge Types

The information on this page serves as a general orientation on the accreditation process.
Updated information on the Berlinale 2023 will be published from autumn 2022.

Representatives of the film industry still have the opportunity to apply for an Online Market Badge for the online EFM (February 10-17, 2022).

The Online Market Badge grants access to the EFM online content ("EFM Industry Sessions", online screenings, participants guide and event schedule).

The Buyers status: The rights holders of the films have the option to restrict access to online screenings to selected groups – for example buyers – within the cohort of EFM participants. Buyers status cannot be purchased but is allocated to a limited number of people by the EFM. You are considered for a Buyers status if you order a Online Market Badge and select "Acquisitions (…)" as your "Field of Activity" on the application form.

Applications for Festival Accreditation can no longer be accepted.

Festival Accreditation grants holders the opportunity to attend festival screenings in every section – but not at all times or at every venue – as well as the public events in the Berlinale Talents programme. Tickets for these events are free-of-charge but must be booked online (new for 2022). Access is in accordance with the Berlinale Covid-19 regulations and capacity restrictions.

Fees and Deadlines

The accreditation fee to be paid is determined by the date of application and remains valid until January 31, 2022. The current daily price applies from February 1, 2022 to all accreditations that have not been paid for.
The "Buyers" status is not available for purchase; it is validated by the EFM and extends the Online Market Badge.
In addition, if you submit a late application, please take into account the processing time required (e.g. for checking the application and - following payment - for activating the EFM online services and the online ticketing for accredited visitors).

Online Market Badge applications can be submitted until February 17, 2022. Due to Covid-19-related capacity restrictions Festival Accreditations can no longer be applied for.
