We provide a separate screening room for accredited press and industry members. There you have the opportunity to watch festival films off-schedule on a PC/TV. In order to secure availability, preregistration is recommended.

Due to limited parking space around the Festival Centre we ask camera teams to contact the press desk ahead of broadcasting in order for parking arrangements to be made.
