Due to the current COVID-19 regulations, accreditation is only possible for those who have been vaccinated or have recovered. The Berlinale is taking place as a "2G" event (access for vaccinated or recovered people).

Official requirements may change according to the epidemic situation. All accredited participants are requested to take personal responsibility for familiarising themselves with the most up-to-date hygiene rules and checking whether they meet the current requirements.
