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 until Monday, September 20th. Alternatively, the amount can be paid on site (exclusively non-cash). In any case, the accreditation must be collected at the press desk in the Festival Centre at Sechseläutenplatz. Please note that press accreditations will not be sent upfront by post and have a valid form of official ID as well as your press pass ready when picking up your accreditation badge.

If you have any questions, please contact [email protected].

We look forward to welcoming you to the 17th Zurich Film Festival!
