Doc Day Conference - ©Eric Bonté - 2016


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.
  • 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...
  • 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.
  • 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. To add one or several documentary films, please refer to our regulations and technical instructions.



Documentary film industry players: should you be interested in hosting your business meetings at your own private table, organizing market screenings of your hot off the press feature documentaries, highlighting your line-up through the video library, setting up your promotional material or holding a tailor-made event, the Doc Corner is the answer.

Please get in touch for further details.


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.

In an assertive effort to highlight and support the essential role & place of documentary filmmaking within the industry and beyond, as a cornerstone of global awareness and cinematic creativity, the Doc Day constitutes the documentary film professionals’ climactic rendezvous throughout the entire Festival de Cannes.

It will be composed of morning and afternoon talks, panels & keynotes on topical, cutting-edge documentary-related issues, with high-level speakers such as captivating filmmakers and top-ranked industry professionals. 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 Day is organized in partnership with L’œil d’or and the CNC.
