Accreditation and Passes
1. I attended IDFA last year and I am already in your system. What is the procedure for me this year?
Even if you have attended the festival previously, every guest must complete an accreditation form. If you attended IDFA as a guest in 2011 or 2012, a new accreditation form has already been created for you. Just edit your IDFA 2013 accreditation in MyIDFA. You can log in with the same user name and password as last year. Please note that everybody has to fill in a company profile or biography which will be published at the IDFA website. » Read more
