Being issued an accreditation implies for the participant full acceptance and compliance of MIA Regulations 2017. Any violation could bring to the Badge withdrawal.

We also kindly remind you that accreditations are issued at the sole discretion of MIA’s Director.
Costs and types of accreditation
Accreditation to MIA has different costs depending on the date of registration of participants and on the activity for which the access is requested. The fee is reduced for participants registering in advance of the market dates and increased for the registration close to the event (after verification of the availability of seats). The date of payment of the accreditation shall be considered as the effective date of registration. During MIA, daily accreditations may be requested; the request must be presented 24 hours in advance. The issuance of the daily Badges is subject to the same conditions covered by this general Regulation and after the verification of the availability of seats. “Talks” accreditations for the sole access to that market section are available.
Payment for the Early Bird accreditation shall be made using a credit card (no bank transfer) by 9 August 2017; payment for the Regular accreditation shall be made in advance (by credit card or bank transfer) by 10 October; the Late accreditation may be paid in advance only with credit card (no bank transfer) or in place when issuing the accreditation (by credit/debit card or in cash). The Daily accreditation may be purchased only in place by credit/debit card or in cash.
For payments by bank transfer, the credit value date for the MIA bank account shall be considered as the effective date.
Please note that badge holders will be granted access to the restricted area of the website (participants and film directories, market screenings schedule, etc.) only after the MIA accreditation will be approved and paid.
The accreditation is valid for the duration of MIA; it should be worn and shown, upon request, to personnel in all areas of the MIA. If someone is found wearing a badge other than his/her own, such badge will be confiscated and not returned.
