FILM PROFESSIONALS' ACCREDITATION
WHO CAN REQUEST ACCREDITATION?
The Festival de Cannes is exclusively reserved to film industry professionals.
It is not necessary to register with the Festival if you make your request through the Marché du Film, as the Market badge includes all Festival participation rights and access to screenings (www.marchedufilm.com/en/accreditations).
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF OUR ACCREDITATION PROCESS?
Festival accreditation is required to gain access to the Palais des Festivals and the Marché du Film. This accreditation gives you access to the screenings according to the conditions set out on your online account, once your request has been validated.
EXPIRY DATE FOR APPLICATIONS
The deadline to make a request for a professional Festival accreditation is April 15th.
Late registration’ request process: From April 15th, and thus until May 2nd, you can apply for late registration, which generates a fee of 100€ (VAT included) for administrative costs.
N.B.: Those requests will be subject to severe restrictions, and only delivered as an exception.
Please note that administrative costs generated in our late registration process are not refundable, whatever the eventual result of your application.
