Press & Film professionals
Create a MyFFG profile
Are you a member of the press, a film professional or a film student? Then you can create a Professional or Press account on MyFFG. In your personal MyFFG account one can find more information about the press screenings, your personal film schedule, your favourite screenings, the interview possibilities, filmstills and the red carpet planning.
Members of the press and professionals can obtain an accreditation for the festival from August onwards. Film professionals can register as Professional, members of the press can register as Press in their MyFFG account. After completing your registration, you can apply for an accreditation within your MyFFG account. Just go to Professional or Press and go to the application form.
