Accreditation possible until November 1!

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 apply to be accredited visitors to the 39th edition of the Kassel Documentary Film and Video Festival.

Accreditation is only possible as a combined accreditation (online and on-site). The majority of the films will be available online on our streaming offer DokfestStreams for seven days after their first screening in festival cinemas. In addition to this, a discursive supporting program will be available through DokfestChannels.

The accreditation includes free access to all screenings or events on site, except for the opening event, the award ceremony and the DokfestBrunch.
