Press Accreditation


We are opening media accreditation for the 21st Docudays UA

We invite media representatives, independent journalists, and film critics who plan to cover festival events to get accredited for the 21st Docudays UA. On 31 May–6 June, as well as during the audience days on 7–9 June, we are calling everyone to watch films, reflect on art, and join human rights and industry events at the Zhovten Cinema, Kino42 Cinema, and the House of Cinema.

To get accredited, please fill out the form at this link. You should apply for accreditation until 11:59 p.m. on 19 May. Accreditation is issued to employees of television, radio, printed and online media, as well as film critics and bloggers who cover films or human rights issues. Up to two people can be accredited on behalf of one media.

With the PRESS badge, you will be able to get free-of-charge tickets to offline screenings at Zhovten and gain access to online film screenings at preliminary individual request.

Regardless of whether you are accredited, you have free access to the events of the RIGHTS NOW! human rights programme, the exhibition and events of the DOCU/SYNTHESIS interdisciplinary art programme, DOCU/CLASS events and the open events of DOCU/PRO. Please note that we ask the accredited media to coordinate requests for participation in closed DOCU/PRO events with the festival organisers. The press accreditation is not valid during the audience days on 7–9 June.

Decisions about giving accreditation to freelance journalists are made by the press office based on a review of their publications and previous collaboration with the journalist. We reserve the right to deny accreditation without explaining our decision. When the festival ends, an accredited journalist is obligated, at the press office’s request, to provide links to their materials or any other confirmation of publishing a material about the festival in the media.
