EIFF 2021 returns in a new and innovative hybrid form this summer. Championing Scottish and UK filmmaking, the Festival will include physical and online screenings and events, in a rich and diverse programme of shorts and feature films.

Industry accreditation is now open for filmmakers and professionals working or studying in the film industry and screen sectors.

EIFF Industry delegates will have access to online Press & Industry screenings through our dedicated EIFF industry screening platform.

Due to screening rights restriction, some films may not be available to industry delegates based outside of the UK or may have restrictions on viewing numbers.

EIFF Industry accreditation will include:

  • Access to online Press & Industry screenings
  • Access to the online Industry area of the EIFF website

Press and industry screenings run from 16 August. Films are available from 2 days before their first public screening and accessible for 72 hours.


For 2021 to reflect our streamlined programme and online screenings we have two accreditation fees on offer:

Employer assisted rate - £40 - This rate is for employers purchasing passes for their team members.

Concession rate - £30 - This rate is for self-employed industry professionals, students or those who have applied for or are in receipt of the UK's Universal Credit, Job Seeker's Allowance, Employment and Support Allowance, Personal Independence Payment or Carer's Allowance.
