Doc Corner & Doc Day
Join the community of documentary film professionals.
Doc Corner & Doc Day
A dedicated venue and tailored program of events for all feature documentary filmmakers and decision-makers, plus an exclusive all-day spotlight on docs and on their essential role in our contemporary societies – Doc Day.
For the whole duration of the Marché du Film, Doc Corner offers multiple opportunities to anyone working with docs, filmmakers and industry representatives alike – particularly top international documentary sales agents & festival programmers. This one-and-only networking platform brings together all the relevant players of the field around a number of customized events: panels, talks, screenings, workshops, consultancies, speed meetings, docs-in-progress showcases… To access the Doc Corner, head over to the Riviera, at the heart of the Marché du Film, and make sure you are registered for a standard Marché du Film badge.
Doc Day, on Tuesday, May 21, is a full-day event composed of keynotes, panel discussions and masterclasses, featuring inspiring filmmakers and industry executives. Doc Day is a precious opportunity to take a step back and reflect on how the documentary genre is continuously evolving as a marketplace, as an artistic form, and as a lever to raise awareness and drive global change.
Bringing Doc Day to a close, the Doc Lovers Mixer, facing the sea, will bond the entire community over a shared drink and enthusiasm for docs. So, to all doc aficionados, be sure to still be in Cannes for Doc Day! Organized in partnership with JustFilms - Ford Foundation, l'Œil d'or - Documentary Award, and the CNC.
