Festival accreditation processing fee:

The fee for accreditation for film students is EUR 35.00 (incl. 19% VAT). Payment will be charged to the credit card listed on your application. In Germany, payment can also be made by bank debit ('SEPA-Basislastschrift'). You will receive a receipt both when your accreditation is confirmed by e-mail and when you pick up your badge. Separate invoices will not be sent.

If we receive written notification from you by June 18, 2021 that you will not be able to attend the festival, your processing fee will be refunded. Later cancellations and 'no shows' will not receive refunds.
