How it works:

Application for accreditation and subsequent notification takes place online. If you do not already have a My ZFF account, you will need to open one in order to apply for accreditation. Once you have opened your My ZFF account, you will find the accreditation form in the ‘Apply for Accreditation’ section.

If your application is successful, we would prefer you to pay the due amount online before September 15. This will enable us to get your accreditation to you by post in good time and to avoid a backlog and long waiting times at the Festival Centre. Alternatively, you can pick up your accreditation at the Press Desk inside the Festival Centre at Sechseläutenplatz. Payment using a non-cash method is due immediately. Please have a valid form of official ID and your press pass ready when picking up your accreditation badge in person.

Please send any questions to [email protected].

We look forward to welcoming you to the Zurich Film Festival!
