Complying with sanitary measures

Participants' health and safety is a priority for both the Festival de Cannes and the Marché du Film.

We will be working with the relevant government and local authorities to implement all measures needed to keep participants safe.


Arriving in France


To ensure your trip to the Festival runs as smoothly as possible, make sure you read through the rules and restrictions that apply for travel to France from the country you are travelling from: Covid-19: International travel | French Ministry of the Interior (


Palais des Festivals


The Palais des Festivals is an international example to be followed in terms of health and safety. It was France’s very first congress centre to be awarded the GBAC STARTM Facility label, North America’s leading certification issued by the Global Biorisk Advisory Council. It has also been awarded the Ecovid label, and the SOCOTEC’s health and safety label. 

Inside the Palais, air-conditioning featuring fresh air supply is used to ensure air quality.

CO² sensors will be dotted around the Palais' various spaces and checked twice a day. All appropriate measures will be taken in the event that the CO² concentration level thresholds set by the health authorities are exceeded.

Extra cleaning and disinfection of the spaces shall take place during the Festival.


Preventive measures


All participants are strongly advised to wear a mask inside the Palais, and in the screening rooms particularly.

Furthermore, we urge you to comply with preventive measures:
