Accreditation

The accreditation period for the upcoming European Film Market starts in November 2022.

Industry professionals travelling to Berlin can apply for a Market Badge for the EFM 2023.

The EFM Market Badge grants access to all EFM locations , to the EFM Screening Schedule, the Particpants Guide, the Event Schedule, as well as to the EFM Industry Sessions.

The Buyers status: The rights holders of the films have the option to restrict access to online screenings to selected groups – for example buyers – within the cohort of EFM participants. Buyers status cannot be purchased but is allocated to a limited number of people by the EFM. You are considered for a Buyers status if you order a Market Badge and select "Acquisitions (…)" as your "Field of Activity" on the application form.
