How do I apply for an accreditation?
Applications for accreditation can be made online. Before filling out the application form you will be forwarded to the My ZFF Account login. If you don't have an account already, you can create a new account for free. Please observe the current guidelines regarding an industry accreditation.

When will I receive a response?
The Zurich Film Festival carefully checks every successfully submitted application and reserves the right to reject accreditation. Applicants will be informed of the ZFF’s decision via e-mail. (Check your spam folder.) Successful applicants can pay online until September 20 or at the Industry Desk when picking up their accreditation passes.

What are the advantages of online payment?
If you pay your accreditation online until September 20, we will send your personal Industry Pass to the private or business address provided in your application before the festival starts. This only applies if you live or work in Switzerland. 

When can I get tickets?
You can obtain tickets at the Industry Desk or book them online from September 24. A special ticket contingent is reserved for the industry.

What's new about my Industry Pass?
With your Industry Pass you can now book tickets online for regular screenings and the ZFF Masters. (For Special Galas and the Golden Icon Award, extra tickets must be purchased). From the first day of the festival on you can book screenings with your personal code on the Industry Pass for the same or the following day on seeticket.ch. 

ATTENTION: Tickets are non-transferable and only one ticket per screening can be booked. At the entrance you will be asked to show your Industry Pass and ticket. Furthermore, it is not possible to book tickets for screenings taking place at the same time.
