Accreditation press

The 11th Odesa International Film Festival invites journalists and media representatives to participate.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related quarantine restrictions worldwide this year’s edition of the Odesa International Film Festival will be held online for the first time. Moreover, the dates of the 11th OIFF have been changed: traditionally held in July, the festival will take place in autumn - from September 25 to October 3.


PRESS accreditation is provided only to representatives of official media outlets (registered print media, radio and television, informational and educational online resources, websites) to cover the events of the festival. Each media category has a maximum accreditation quota, which is *:

  • for TV channels – 2 people
  • for print and online media – 1 people
  • for radio stations – 1 person

The need to obtain accreditations in the amount exceeding the quota for a particular publication must be justified and confirmed by an official letter from the project / publication manager. To apply for accreditation, you must signup, register and fill out an application form on the OIFF website. The press service of the OIFF reserves the right, upon considering the application, to request additional materials from the applicant, as well as to refuse accreditation without explanation. The issuing of the PRESS accreditation implies automatic inclusion of the journalist’s e-mail address into the OIFF mailing list (news, press releases, information for accredited media). In order to comply with copyright, as well as for the convenience of viewers, photography and filming during festival screenings of competition and non-competition programs is prohibited. Photo and video materials for the films will be provided by the press service. The OIFF press office accepts applications for organizing exclusive interviews with all guests of the festival, but does not guarantee their realization. A journalist with a PRESS accreditation undertakes to provide copies of all materials about OIFF (.pdf, video, audio, links) by the deadline set by the press service. In case of failure to provide the materials, the journalist may be denied accreditation in the future. 


Accreditation is valid throughout the festival (September 25 - October 3, 2020) and entitles the media representative to visit: 
  •  Events for press in the press tent
  • Access to all online screenings according to the program.
  • The events of the Film Industry Office section (September 29 - October 2, 2020) and the open events of the Film Market (the list of events will be announced later) 
  • Master classes and creative meetings with the guests of the festival (directors, actors, producers, etc.) 
  • Open-air screenings 

The accreditation badge is the property of the OIFF, is provided directly to the accredited media representative and is not transferable to other persons. In the event of the latter, the badge will be confiscated, and the accreditation will be canceled. If the accreditation badge is lost, it can be restored for a fee.
