Accreditation is strictly personal and non-transferable. Each participant may request only one accreditation for a single professional category. The Dubai International Film Festival may accept or turn down an application for accreditation at its sole discretion.
Collecting your accreditation:
Accreditation may be collected on presentation of a valid photo ID as well as the acceptance email (which will be sent to all confirmed and accepted registrants) at the Registration Centre located within the Festival Headquarters at Madinat Jumeirah. The exact address, dates, and opening hours of the office will be provided in the email confirming your accreditation.
Benefits of Accreditation:
Your accreditation badge will allow you access to Dubai Film Market Events with attending Industry members, including Dubai Film Forum, Dubai Film Market Lounge, Dubai Film Market Services and networking opportunities. It will also give you free access to festival screenings (limited number of tickets per day, and subject to seat availability), with the exception of gala screenings. This badge will allow you to use the viewing library at the Festival Headquarters at Madinat Jumeirah.
The accreditation is valid for the duration of DIFF; it must be clearly displayed and shown upon request to personnel in all areas of the Festival. Badges remain the property of DIFF and must be surrendered upon request. Access to the Dubai Film Connection and Dubai Filmmart is limited. To be considered for accreditation applicants must indicate their interest on the on-line registration form and they will be informed if their application is successful.
