Press Accreditation


We invite media representatives to get accredited for the 19th Docudays UA Special Edition. On 11–13 November, please come to the Zhovten Cinema for the State of Emergency documentary weekend.

For the first time in three years, we are returning to the big screen!

The deadline for accreditation is 3 November at 11:59 p.m.

Terms and conditions

Accreditation can be given to employees of media (printed publications, radio and television, informational and informational-analytical online publications). Up to two people can be accredited from one media. The decision on whether to provide accreditation to freelance journalists will be made by the Press Service on the grounds of reviewing their publications and our previous work with the journalist.

The Festival Press Service reserves the right to deny accreditation without explaining their decision. When the Festival ends, the journalist is obligated to provide links to publications or any other confirmation of publishing a media material about the Festival at the Press Service’s request.



With the PRESS badge, you will be able to obtain free tickets to the offline screenings in Zhovten* and have access to watching films online upon prior individual request.

Regardless of accreditation, you have free access to the events of the RIGHTS NOW! Human Rights programme on DOCUSPACE. 

For more detailed information about the festival, or if you have any questions about the accreditation or organisation of interviews, please email:

Maria Matiashova, Festival Press Coordinator, at [email protected];
