Berlinale: Badge Types & Fees

Badge Types & Fees / Deadlines

Until november 2020 applications for Accreditation / EFM Registration are not accepted.

Please note that all information currently given on these pages refers to the Berlinale 2020 and is given subject to alteration in order to offer a general insight into accreditation procedures.

Industry professionals can apply for a Festival Accreditation and/ or a Market Badge.

  • The Festival Accreditation allows access to festival screenings of each section, though not at all times or at every venue, and to public events of the Berlinale Talents programme. Tickets for those screenings are free of additional charge. The Festival Accreditation offers limited access to the market venues Gropius Bau and Marriott Hotel. During the particularly busy market days (Feb 21-24, Fr-Mo) access with a Festival Accreditation is only possible from 5pm.
  • The Market Badge allows priority access to the EFM locations (Gropius Bau & Mariott Hotel) during all market days (Feb 20-27, 2020). In addition, Market Badge holders have access to market screenings, the EFM business tools (Participants Directory, Screening Schedule, Daily Planner, My Film Entry & Trailer) as well as the market platforms EFM Horizon, DocSalon, EFM Producers Hub, Berlinale Africa Hub, EFM Landmark and Berlinale Series Market.
