All Market Badge holders have access to the stands and offices of the European Film Market in the Gropius Bau, Marriott Hotel and Gropius Park. All EFM screenings can only be accessed with a Market Badge or Buyers Badge.
Due to a strong increase in participating industry professionals and in order to ensure the safety of our visitors, the admission policy for the EFM 2019 has been adapted:
A Festival Accreditation grants access to the EFM locations (Gropius Bau & Marriott Hotel) only on Thursday, the 7th February and as of Tuesday, the 12th February.
Please understand that no admission can be granted on particularly busy market days (Friday, 8th February - Monday, 11th February) with a Festival Accreditation.
The Market Badge, however, allows access to all EFM locations throughout the entire duration of the European Film Market (07-15 February).
Only Market Badge holders have access to the market platforms EFM Horizon, DocSalon, EFM Producers Hub, Berlinale Africa Hub and Drama Series Days.
