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 / Tel: +33 (0)1 53 59 61 85

If your main activity is audiovisual (TV, radio, audiovisual press agency, audiovisual web media) or photographic (photo agency, press photographer), your contact will be the Audiovisual Press Office:
- Audiovisual press or photography:
- Audiovisual Web Media - all digital media (Video & Image):
Tel: +33 (0)1 53 59 61 88


From 1 Febuary onward for the Editorial Press Office, and from 1 March onwards for the Audiovisual Press Office, 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 My Account > My Dossier.

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, as well as various documents providing useful information.

Environmental contribution

Registering for the Festival de Cannes requires payment of a €20 (excl. tax) environmental contribution per participant that aims to offset carbon emissions generated by accredited attendees’ travel to and accommodation in Cannes. The collected sums will then be donated in full to carbon offset programmes. This offsetting measure is part of the Festival de Cannes’ new environmental policy.

The Festival’s new environmentally-friendly initiatives will soon be outlined in an eco-responsible programme available to view online.
