You will receive an accreditation card with a special festival bag from us.

Accreditation is absolutely free and it is required for participation in the festival listening sessions of the competing works. The festival also offers workshops, debates, concerts and theatre performances. Most of the accompanying programme is absolutely free, but always verify the information in the festival programme.

You can find the documentaries, dramas, news reports and multimedia projects that advanced to the main competition on the web pages, in the application and in the festival catalogue, where you will find basic information on each of the competing works. In the case of documentaries and dramas, you can also listen to short excerpts.
You can find the listening programme for the day, with the listening order and the times for the debates on the doors of the hall, in the Accreditation Centre, on the web pages and in the festival application.
