Accreditation form

This year, accreditation is possible as online or combination accreditation only. The combination accreditation includes both online and on site screenings and events. This is due to the shortage of cinema capacities. To accommodate accredited visitors, the quantity of possible viewers for screenings is expanded through access to DokfestOnline, where a separate contingent is reserved for accredited guests only.

Each film will be available via streaming online for six days after its premiere in the cinema. The DokfestChannels with presentations and a selection of recorded events complement the DokfestStreams film program and can be accessed via our homepage.

The accreditation fees are 30€ for the online accreditation and 45€ for the combined accreditation.

You will receive free access to all screenings/events on site in compliance with current hygiene measures. Excluded are the opening event, the award ceremony and the DokfestBrunch.

The accreditation is free of charge for journalists. Participating artists, film directors and speakers are accredited by default.
