A trust contract between festivals and producers

The FIAPF accreditation program is a trust contract between festivals and producers, which ensures that films benefit from the best possible promotion and visibility.

For producers, sales agents, filmmakers, the accreditation guarantees that the best interests of their films will be respected. For festivals, the accreditation is an unrivaled quality and reliability label.

A global and diverse community

Through its four distinct categories, the FIAPF accreditation program gathers a genuine global and diverse community, which includes the most prestigious film festivals as well as more intimate festivals held in emerging production countries.

This diversity is a valuable asset for structuring the ecosystem and preparing it for future challenges.

Festivals (sorted out by country) : Mar del Plata International Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Shanghai International Film Festival, Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival, Festival de Cannes, Berlin International Film Festival, Venice International Film Festival, Tokyo International Film Festival, Busan International Film Festival, Locarno Film Festival.

A unique platform of exchanges

FIAPF offers a unique platform of reflection and knowledge sharing between festivals and between festivals and the industry.
