Badge Types

The quota for Festival Accreditations has been reached. Applications for Festival or Student Accreditations can no longer be accepted.

It is still possible to apply for a Market Badge or Online Market Badge for the European Film Market until the respective badge quota is reached.

Representatives of the film industry attending the festival in person can apply for festival accreditation and/or a Market Badge. Industry visitors who mainly wish to participate online in the EFM can apply for an Online Market Badge. Details on the respective access options can be found in the table below.

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. Access to the exhibitors within the EFM locations (Gropius Bau & Marriott Hotel) will be restricted. Access with a Festival Accreditation will be permitted on the following dates: February 16 all day, February 17 to 20 from 5 pm and on February 21 and 22 all day.

The Market Badge grants full access to the EFM locations, EFM Industry Sessions, Berlinale Series Market and market screenings. These screenings can be attended without tickets on production of a Market Badge. In addition, Market Badge holders have access to the EFM Online Services (VoD of selected EFM Industry Sessions, Online Screenings, the Participants Guide and, for producers, the Producers & Project Pages).

Festival Accreditation and the Market Badge grant access to the World Cinema Fund Day.

The Online Market Badge grants access to the EFM online events and services (VoD of selected EFM Industry Sessions, Online Screenings, Participants Guide, Producers & Projects Pages) and in Berlin to the Archive Market (Feb 21) as well as to the EFM stands in the Gropius Bau and the Marriott Hotel all day on February 21 and 22, 2023.

Buyers status: The Buyers Badge grants access to market screenings and the EFM locations with a priority over Market Badge holders. The rights holders of the films have the option to restrict access to the screenings (on-site & online) to selected groups – for example buyers – within the cohort of EFM participants. Buyer’s 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.

The EFM Day Pass is not on offer in 2023.

Fees and Deadlines

The accreditation fee to be paid is determined by the date of application and remains valid until February 2, 2023. The current daily price applies from February 3, 2023 to all accreditations that have not been paid for.
The "Buyers" status is not available for purchase; it is allocated by the EFM and extends the Market Badge/Online Market Badge.

Due to capacity restrictions, we strongly recommend that you submit your accreditation application(s) by the Regular rate deadline on January 10, 2023. After this date, the possibility to apply for and grant individual or multiple types of accreditation may be discontinued at any time.

Online Market Badge applications can be submitted until February 22, 2023.
