Environmental contribution (new)

In 2021, registering for the Festival de Cannes requires payment of a €20 (excl. tax) environmental contribution per participant that aims to offset carbon emissions generated by accredited attendees’ travel to and accommodation in Cannes. The collected sums will then be donated in full to carbon offset programmes. This offsetting measure is part of the Festival de Cannes’ new environmental policy.
