Children can access the film theatres with an accreditation or a ticket. For security reasons and reasons of comfort, children under the age of 3 are not allowed in the theatres.
I have a pet, can it come onto the event's site with me?
Animals are not allowed in the cinema theatres and in the Imperial Palace (except guide dogs).

In the context of the Vigipirate plan, it is prohibited to enter any of the Festival venues with any potentially dangerous object (motorbike helmet, knives, glass bottles, etc.) or voluminous items (luggage, travel bags, kick-scooter, skateboards, etc.). This year, the current health measures do not allow us to provide luggage locker facilities at the Festival or at the Mifa. We kindly request that you leave your bags and other large items at your accommodation.
