Marché du Film Online Accreditations

The Festival de Cannes is launching the Marché du Film Online, an online market created to support the international film industry and help its professionals. It will be held from Monday 22 to Friday 26  June.

The online market will reproduce as far as possible the market experience in Cannes, with live and real-time meetings. It will offer creative alternatives to facilitate business and networking for film industry professionals from all over the world. The Marché du Film Online will take the form of a closed industry space including:

  • Virtual booths for sales agents: sales companies will be able to connect with buyers and to display their new films and projects-in-progress in an online dedicated space, serving as a digital equivalent to their booths at Cannes.

  • Virtual pavilions for institutions: institutions from all over the world will present their national cinematography, film commissions and film locations, support their producers and organise meetings in a virtual space, as they are used to doing in their pavilions in the Village International.

  • Video meetings: participants can request and organise meetings via the Marché du Film networking app Match&Meet, which now has integrated video calls.

  • Online screenings: completed films, those in post-production and project presentations will be programmed according to set schedules in about fifteen virtual cinemas, to maintain the market momentum and allow time for viewing and negotiation. Reruns will be organised for buyers in different time zones. The platform will be based on Cinando technology and will have strict security measures in place - including DRM, individual watermark and real-time management and monitoring of admissions to screenings (Cinando is the platform launched by the Marché du Film in 2003, which has become the number one network for navigating the film industry, including contacts, films, projects in development and screeners).

  • Programmes and conferences: most programmes and conferences will be transposed to the digital space: Cannes Docs, Cannes Next, Producers Network, Goes to Cannes, Frontières and Fantastic 7 will be reshaped to offer these communities - creators, producers and sales agents -  the same opportunities to network and present their projects. Le Marché du Film Online will also offer “speed meetings” around composers, book publishers and producers. Cannes XR, our programme dedicated to immersive entertainment, will present its projects in a setting where films can be viewed with a VR headset.


Accreditations for the Marché du Film Online will soon be available for industry professionals at an early bird rate of  €95 until May 29, then at the normal rate of €195 (accreditation includes a one-year subscription to Cinando).
