Practical Guide

Your accreditation badge (Festival, Marché, Press, Cinephiles or Three Days in Cannes) gives you access to the Festival zone and to the screenings (Official Selection, parallel events and/or Marché du Film) depending on your accreditation category. Badges are nominative, non-transferable and must be worn so as to be visible in order to facilitate ID checks. In the event of loss or theft, please contact the late accreditation office.
