Accreditation Film Industry / Press 2021


Accreditation entitles the holder to free admission to all film screenings at Nordische Filmtage Lübeck. Local regulations currently allow for cinema screenings, in accordance with all the covid abatement measures prevailing at the time of the festival. Due to capacity limitations, we can only offer a small number of tickets per screening to accredited guests. To offset that, there will be additional morning screenings exclusively for accredited guests at Lübeck's CineStar - Das Filmhaus.

You can be accredited as a current representative of the press or the film industry. We also offer a limited contingent for students of corresponding study courses. As a media educator you can register for the educational accompanying seminar (in German), which includes accreditation. Please have the relevant certificates ready. The Nordische Filmtage Lübeck reserves the right to refuse accreditation after examination without giving reasons. There is no legal claim to accreditation.

Press: Accreditations are issued to journalists who provide news coverage of Nordische Filmtage Lübeck. We kindly ask journalists who are being accredited for the first time and/or did not report in the preceding year, for additional confirmation of news coverage by the editor-in-charge. Photographers and camera teams who wish to report only on certain events need not apply for accreditation but will receive special permits and badges. Please send your request by e-mail to the festival press office prior to the event:

Accreditation ends October 29, 2021

Please make sure you have a digital passport photograph in a JPEG format (max. 2 MB) ready for upload.

Prepayment for accreditation confirmation
As of 2020, payment of the accreditation fee of 50 Euros (including VAT) has to be done as an advance bank transfer. After the festival has checked your accreditation application, you will receive the transfer request with all necessary information together with the confirmation. Your registration is only valid after receipt of payment. You will also receive an invoice from us.

Failure to comply with the application deadline will increase the accreditation fee to 60 Euros and we cannot guarantee that your accreditation badge and festival documents will be issued in time.

Online streaming (limited to Germany / Geoblocking!)
In addition, as an accredited person you will have access to our VoD-plattform and can stream selected films there. If you only want to use this online offer and do not want to come to Lübeck, please tick the appropriate box in the form so that we can plan in advance. The amount of the accreditation fee does not differ. You will receive your access details for the online platform in a separate e-mail after successful accreditation. The digital platform is subject to geo-blocking so that the films can only be streamed within Germany, and during the festival from November 3 to 7, 2021.

If you are present in Lübeck you will receive your festival-badge and further information handouts at the information desk at Altstadtbad Krähenteich (new!), An der Mauer 51/2.

Declaration on data protection:
We assure you that your data will be handled confidentially and responsibly. The personal data that you pass on to us within the scope of accreditation will be used and stored exclusively for the purpose of processing the transaction. You have the right to receive information about your personal data stored by us at any time. You also have the right to have your personal data corrected, blocked or, apart from the prescribed data storage for business transactions, deleted.

During the Nordic Film Days Lübeck, photo, film and sound recordings of media representatives and the festival's press team will be made, which will potentially be published in various media and on social media platforms for purposes of event coverage and general public relations.
