    The Festival de Cannes is for film professionals only. In order to take part, professionals must be accredited. Accreditation is granted according to professional activity.


    The Festival de Cannes is one of the largest media events in the world, covered by more than 4000 journalists and over 2000 media outlets from around 90 countries.
    Press accreditations are granted by the Press Office or the Audiovisual Press Office, to authorised media representatives only, who have been assigned responsibility for media coverage of the Festival. Any other media representatives should contact the Festival Accreditations team.

    The number of accreditations per media outlet and the categories of the badges (access and priority levels) are attributed according to the profession represented (journalist, photographer, media technician), the periodicity of the media outlet, its size (circulation, audience), its focus on cinema and its expected coverage of the Festival de Cannes.

    If your main activity is editorial (print and digital press, news agency, web/digital media editor), your point of contact is the Press Office:
    Print and digital press, news agencies:
    Web/digital media:
    Tel: +33 (0)1 53 59 61 85

    If your main activity is audiovisual (broadcast media agency, photo agency, press photographer, audiovisual web media, TV, radio), your contact will be the Audiovisual Press Office:
    Broadcast media (TV-Radio-Agency), photo agencies & press photographers:
    Audiovisual Web Media (Video & Image):
    Tel: +33 (0)1 53 59 61 88


    From February onwards, you can apply for a press accreditation on our website by creating an online account, then filling in and submitting the application form. You can track your accreditation request online through your account.

    You can apply for individual accreditation for yourself, individual accreditation for a third party, or accreditation for a group of people. It is very important to fill in the specific information for each person.

    If your team consists of editorial journalists (written coverage) and broadcast journalists (audiovisual coverage), you will need to proceed in two different steps, and submit two separate applications, one for each main activity (editorial group and audiovisual group).


    You will receive an email notifying you if your request is confirmed or denied.

    From your online account, you can print out the documents you need to collect your badge at Cannes at the Palais des Festivals, as well as various documents providing useful information.
