CANNES TOP TIPS VIDEO

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."
  • "Visit the Screen Australia office to gather yourself when you feel overwhelmed."
  • "Don’t expect any real results first time around. The first market is a big learning curve and really is sink or swim."
