How to apply

  • Create an account if you do not have one yet and fill in the data as indicated ("Personal profile" and "Contact information"). Go to your mailbox and click on the link received to complete your account creation. Please do not forget to upload a photo.
  • Choose one of the three accreditation options (PRESS PASS, DOCM PASS or FESTIVAL PASS).

You will receive a confirmation e-mail within a few days of your accreditation request. The requested fee can be paid online on My VdR. The link for the payment will be available as soon as your accreditation request has been approved.

If you cannot pay online, you can pay cash (Swiss francs only) or by card (EC, MasterCard, Visa, Apple Pay or Android Pay) upon your arrival at the Festival at the accreditation desk, Village du Réel. If you choose to pay at the desk, there may be some lengthy waiting time.
