• How to



Industry representatives have the opportunity to apply for Industry accreditation. A precondition for an industry accreditation is a proof of your current professional activity as a filmmaker or representative of the film industry, cultural institution or another film festival. Every accreditation request is reviewed individually and you may be asked to provide convincing proof of your professional activity in accordance with the accreditation requirements. Please note that the Zurich Film Festival reserves the right to reject applications.

Industry accreditations for the 19th Zurich Film Festival (28.09. – 8.10.23) can be requested in early summer 2023.

FAQ's accreditation

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 MyZFF-Account login. If you don't have a personal MyZFF-account already, you can create a new one 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.) Please be patient. It may take a few days for your application to be reviewed. Successful applicants can pay online until September 12, 2022 or at the industry desk when picking up their badges.

What are the advantages of online payment?
If you pay your accreditation online until September 18, 2023 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 28, 2023. A special ticket contingent is reserved for the industry.

What can I do with my industry badge?
With your industry badge you can book tickets online for regular screenings and the ZFF Masters. (For Premium Screenings and the Golden Icon Award, extra tickets must be purchased). With your personal code on the industry badge tickets can be obtained only for the same and the following day. You can only book your industry ticket until one hour before the screening.

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 badge and ticket. Furthermore, it is not possible to book tickets for screenings taking place at the same time.

I missed the deadline. Can I still get an industry accreditation?
Of course, you can request a late industry accreditation at the industry desk (extra charge: CHF 20.00). Please check out the desk opening hours
