Accreditation form


Filmmakers, artists, distributors, producers, curators, tv editors, press representatives (on presentation of a valid press pass or confirmation of order) as well as students of film and media related studies (on presentation of a valid student ID) can make an application for the 37th edition of the Kassel Documentary Film and Video Festival.

This year, accreditation is only possible as online or combination accreditation, but not only for the festival on site. This is due to the shortage of cinema capacities. These are being expanded by the access to DokfestOnline, where a separate contingent is reserved for accredited guests only.

Each film will be available as a stream online for six days in Germany 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 35€ for the online accreditation and 50€ for the combined accreditation.

You will receive free access to all screenings/events on site within the currently valid limits. Excluded are the opening event and the award ceremony.

The accreditation is free of charge for participating artists, directors, referents as well as journalists.

To apply for accreditation, please fill out the online form and send proof of the stated activity to This can be an email from your professional email address, a confirmation from your employer or a certificate of immatriculation.

Please let us know via a notation in the "Comments" field in which of the two possible forms of accreditation you are interested in.

Deadline for accreditations: November 10, 2020
