COVID-19 information


If you suspect you are ill before the festival, please stay at home. We reimburse any costs for the accreditation and registered events in full.

Because of COVID-19, all festival passes this year will be issued with name and barcode. All festival participants will be scanned into all film screenings and events so that we can trace infections if needed. The festival pass is therefore personal with a name and should not be used by others. Festival passes must be brought to all events and screenings.

Please note that we store your contact information for 14 days after the end of the festival, and that name lists will be shared with the municipal supervisor if there is a need for infection detection.
