Press Accreditation


We invite media representatives to get accredited for the 19th Docudays UA International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival. The festival will take place between 25 March and 3 April 2022 in a hybrid format: at several locations in Kyiv and online at the same time. For the first time in two years, we will return to the big screens!


To get accredited at the 19th Docudays UA, please fill out the form at this link. The accreditation deadline is 6 March.




Accreditation is given to employees of media (printed media, radio, and television, informational and informational-analytical online publications). Up to two people from the same publication can receive accreditation.


The decision about providing accreditation to freelance journalists will be made by the Press Office on the grounds of a review of their publications and previous collaboration with the journalist.


The Festival Press Office reserves the right to deny accreditation without explaining the reasons for its decision.


Following the end of the festival, each journalist must provide links to their published materials or any other proof that material about the festival has been published in the media upon request from the Press Office.




With the PRESS badge, you will be able to get free-of-charge tickets to offline screenings at specially indicated festival locations* as well as gain access to online screenings upon preliminary individual request.


* The final list of the available locations for this accreditation will be published soon.

Regardless of whether you are accredited, you will have free access to:

- offline and online festival events;

- DOCU/CLASS events;

- events of the RIGHTS NOW! human rights program and the Living Library.


Important to know: You need pre-registration or a certain kind of festival accreditation to participate in some of the events, which is specifically indicated in the programme.


Access to all offline festival locations will only be possible upon presenting a valid vaccination certificate, a negative PCR or express antigen test result (valid for 72 hours) or a recovery certificate.
