Prepare for market

Our 2023 Guide to Cannes provides an overview of the festival, market, accreditation requirements, useful contact details and tips for first-timers. Our latest International Sales Agent Directory can help with your market preparations and please make sure you use your Marché du Film registration to also check Cinando for further up-to-date contact information on who is attending Cannes to set up other appropriate meetings.

This Cannes podcast provides insights and takeaways from the 2022 festival/market as well as some valuable tips for new attendees.

Priority to meeting tables at Screen Australia’s office is given to key creatives with films screening in Cannes, and those with a track record of commercially released and internationally recognised long form Australian content. These facilities are only available to Australian-based citizens or permanent residents only.

As there is high demand for these tables and very limited capacity, we recommend you try to set your meetings around the market - like the casual areas in the Palais, at sales agents’ offices, the many cafes, and great outdoor areas that hotels offer like the Grand and other popular meeting spots.

Attendee Tips

  • "It is important to have a clear aim of what one wishes to achieve from your meetings and not to overload the meetings with multiple projects."
  • "We only managed to set up three meetings before leaving Australia, but we had a clear idea of who we wanted to see and were able to hone in on these people within several days of arriving. Many sales agents were too busy in the first three days to arrange a meeting, but we kept at it and had secured them all by the end of the first weekend."
  • "It’s better to have one good meeting than 40 bad ones. Seeing most people is not as good as seeing the best people for your projects. Make notes after every meeting otherwise it all becomes a muddle."
  • "The Producer’s Network is a great way to give each day a structure and make you feel relevant in the insanity of selling, to network, to gain access to companies through roundtables and to feel a sense of belonging."
  • "Don’t expect any real results first time around. The first market is a big learning curve and really is sink or swim."
