Practical Guide

An environmentally-friendly Festival

Bringing the world's largest and most beautiful film festival to life has always been an artistic and economic challenge. It is now also an environmental challenge.


The Festival de Cannes is fully aware of its status and responsibilities in this regard. This year it is therefore setting up a series of 12 green measures, designed to align its present and future actions with an essential movement, in which cultural events must play an active and committed role.


After several months of preparation with the consulting firm Green Événements, and driven by the determination of the organising team, the Festival's commitment will unite the efforts of all involved, from professionals, accredited persons, official partners and service providers to the Palais des Festivals and the Cannes Town Council.


Thank you for helping the Festival play its part!
