Q: What do I do if I'm having problems with my login?
A: If you have booked a ticket or registered to attend EIFF or Filmhouse since 2017, you will likely already have an account linked to your email address.

If you can't remember your password please follow the instructions to request a new one.

Please note that an email address can only be linked to ONE person. If you are trying to accredit several people on behalf of the same film or organisation you will need to provide a different separate email address for each of them.
