How to Festival FAQs

Your Industry Badge is your access to everything at the festival. If you have a private or business address in Switzerland, we have sent you the badge and it should be in your mailbox by 26 September.

ATTENTION: This is only valid if the accreditation has been paid by 20 September.

If this is not the case, you can come and collect your personal badge from the Industry Office at the Festival Centre from the start of the festival (28 September).

The Industry and Guest Office is your contact point for questions and other problems during the festival. It is located on Sechseläutenplatz next to the Festvialzentrum (No. 7).

The Industry Screenings are exclusive film screenings from the official festival programme for the accredited industry and press. They are accessible with the personal Industry Badge and without an extra ticket.

More information and screening schedule

This year, the Who's Who is available via the Cinando Market Environment. There you will find the list of industry representatives and other important information.

The login will be sent to you personally by Cinando (please also check your spam account). In case of a late accreditation, the activation may take a few days.

During and until one week after the ZFF, your Industry accreditation gives you the opportunity to watch many films from the official programme online. The ZFF Video Library is accessible via Festival Scope and will be activated after you have received your accreditation.
