Can anyone receive an accreditation?
No. Accreditations are granted only to those who participate actively in the program and festival events. Accreditations are not for sale. There are two categories for accreditation:
Invited guest: Accreditations for invited guests are given directly by the festival to those who have been selected for competition, members of the film community who have been explicitly invited by the festival, sponsors and special guests.
Press: Press accreditations for the 16th FICM will be granted the following ways: By invitation, according to the work done in previous editions of the festival, or by evaluation to the members of the media that wish to cover the festival for the first time.
