Guidelines for Accreditation

Accreditation is granted exclusively for the purpose of journalistic reporting, for professional visitors and for students in film-related fields of study.

Otherwise, the International Filmfest Braunschweig e.V., Neue Straße 8, 38100 Braunschweig (hereinafter referred to as the "Association") reserves the right to further verify proof of journalistic activity or activity as a trade visitor or proof of training or service.

There is no right to accreditation in any of the accreditation categories.


A. Accreditation requirement

Accreditation applications will only be processed within the official application period. The deadlines will be published on the website of the Braunschweig International Film Festival. The submission of an application does not guarantee accreditation. The organizer reserves the right to decide whether to accept or reject an application. Press accreditation is free of charge.


B. Press accreditation

Press accreditation can be obtained by those who prove their journalistic activity as follows:

1. by submitting name articles which are not older than six months at the time of the event.

2. by submitting an imprint in which they are named as editors, permanent editorial staff or authors and which is not older than three months at the time of the event.

3. by means of a web link to an online publication that is established in the respective industry community and has an appropriate reach. In individual cases, there may be separate, more detailed accreditation rules for bloggers and a separate status for bloggers.

4. holders of a valid press card of a domestic or foreign journalists' association.

We would like to point out that the mere presentation of a press card is not automatically sufficient for accreditation. The association reserves the right to request further proof of journalistic activity in accordance with points 1-4.

Furthermore, the association reserves the right to request the presentation of a personal document with photo in individual cases.


C. Accreditation for trade visitors

This accreditation can be granted to anyone who can provide proof of current professional activity as a filmmaker or representative of the film industry, cultural institutions or other film festivals.

To receive this accreditation, a fee of 40 euros must be paid. Transfer of accreditation is not possible.


D. Student accreditation

This accreditation is intended for students in film-related fields of study. Accreditation is open to all those who, in their studies, deal with film in a practical or theoretical way. Please note that we will need a form of validation of your studies.

To obtain this accreditation, a fee of 25 euros must be paid. It is not possible to transfer the accreditation.


E. General Terms and Conditions

The General Terms and Conditions of the Association as well as the Privacy Policy shall apply in addition. In the event of a conflict between the Accreditation Guidelines and the General Terms and Conditions, the latter shall take precedence.


F. Data Protection

In order to be accredited, it is necessary to store personal data in the festival platform Eventival. We assure you that we will handle your data confidentially and responsibly. We will use and store the personal data you provide us with in the course of online registration solely for the purpose of processing your application. The data will only be passed on within the company and under no circumstances to third parties.
