Accreditation

    Learn more about accreditation for professionals at IDFA

    Depending on your professional activities in the documentary field and your interest, we offer a variety of accreditations providing access to the festival, markets, and talent development program. Please note that the application deadline is now closed.

    At the moment, IDFA 2022 is an onsite festival and while we offer a limited online participation, we do not offer Online Passes separately.

    Corona entry regulations to the Netherlands are largely lifted for those who are vaccinated with an EMA approved vaccine or one that is on the WHO Emergency Use Listing. You can check which travel restrictions may apply for you here.
