Press Accreditation


We are opening media accreditation for the 20th Docudays UA

We invite media representatives, independent journalists, and film critics who plan to cover festival events to get accredited for the 20th Docudays UA. On 2–8 June, we are calling everyone to watch films at the Zhovten Cinema!

To get accredited, please fill out the form at this link. You must apply for accreditation until 11:59 p.m. on 21 May. Accreditation is issued to employees of the media (television, radio, printed and online publications). 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 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 programme, and DOCU/CLASS events. Please note that you need industry accreditation or festival participant accreditation to take part in DOCU/PRO events.

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.
