Ideally located in the Riviera, at the crossroads of the Marché du Film’s foot traffic, the Doc Corner is an all-in-one professional networking & business-making platform, 100% focused on non-fiction. It is designed for promoting theatrical documentary features, selling / picking-up exclusive new titles, developing your projects, garnering expertise and tutoring, expanding your network, and interacting with a wide range of documentary film professionals

This targeted Industry Program, reserved to Marché du Film badge-holders, is structured around:

  •  Various exhibitors, among which a number of major world sales companies. Check out the list of our 7 exhibitors this year below.
  • A docs-only 25-seats ‘pop-up’ market screening room, for sales agents and producers to showcase their latest titles to potential buyers, programmers, commissioning editors... Full list of Doc Corner screenings available in the Pocket Guide and on Cinando (go to the @ CANNES section > SCRENNING SCHEDULE > select ‘Doc Corner’ in the list of venues).
  • A number of activities and events, offering a multitude of ways to connect with fellow documentary film professionals, multiply collaboration opportunities and reflect on some the sector’s key issues. Discover all of the activities and events this year by clicking on the SCHEDULE or PROGRAM tabs
  • An online video library comprised of 250 feature docs, including the specialized sales agents’ line-ups and all the feature documentaries registered with the 2017 Marché du Film.


After a very successful first edition in 2016, the Doc Corner Industry Program is extremely proud to reiterate its annual Doc Day, an all-day-long event entirely focused on the documentary genre, to be held on Tuesday May 23rd, in Cannes.

 The Doc Lovers Mixer will nicely close the day at the Plage des Palmes, welcoming the entire documentary film community for an unmissable networking cocktail.

Make sure you absolutely save the date – May 23rd –, and join us for this one-of-a-kind day-long celebration of docs in Cannes!


The Doc Corner & the Doc Day are supported by the Ford Foundation’s JustFilms program, in a shared commitment to support advocacy filmmakers in raising global awareness on social justice issues, and help their works make a difference by challenging inequality
