Corona Information

We also have to pay attention to the current situation: Of course the 25th IFF SCHLINGEL will take place regarding then valid rules of distance and care of health for protection against covid-19. Please read the following advices carefully.

Programme changes because of covid-19

We point out that we have to strictly divide pupils from accredited guests. Because of that we can not permit entrance to the school events in the morning and early afternoon. As for that our programme on monday and tuesday is not as large-scaled as it was in the previous years and we recommend attendance from wednesday at the earliest.

Specifications and restrictions in travelling

Please consider in your registration that every participant has to organize his or her journey by him- / herself. We kindly ask you to inform yourself regarding possible travel restrictions and quarantine regulations for which we can not take responsibility. Even though we would love to welcome as much friends and partners as possible, we have to advice against travelling. As an alternative you can accredit as “professionals online” and watch a big part of our films on a video on demand-platform. All those who want to take the risks of travelling by themselves we will of course warmly welcome in Chemnitz.


Only those who are currently professional active as a filmmaker or representative of the film industry, of cultural institutions or other film festivals can apply for an accreditation. When picking up your accreditation, please provide evidence.


Professionals online

With your accreditation for “professionals online” you get personalized access to our VoD-platform. Within this you can watch a big part of the films we screen in Chemnitz. Access is only granted during our festival week from 11th to 17th October. Our terms of use (PDF 471 kB) and data protection (PDF 304 kB) rules are valid.

Press Accreditation

Journalists from all media sectors (print, online, TV, radio, web TV, photography) and PR agents of the festival films can apply for a press accreditation.
