Your screenings at the Marché du Film
With 33 theaters, the Marché du Film offers a wide choice of screening rooms ranging from 19 to 320 seats which are equipped with digital or video formats. Those screening rooms are dispatched on 5 different locations very close from the Palais des Festivals.
Conditions to book a screening with the Marché du Film :
- Being registered with the Marché du Film
- Only feature films will be accepted (short films can register via Cannes Court Métrage)
- Only two screenings per film, a third one may be added in the evening.
Screening reservations can be made by all companies registered with the Marché. Requests are processed on a first come first served basis. Films produced prior to January 1, 2017 and films that were screened at a previous Marché du Film are not accepted.
The detailed information on the films and the screening schedule are listed in the Pocket Guide, the Dailies, Cannes Market News and Cinando.com. The schedule is forwarded every day to the international trades to be published in their daily editions (Le Film Français, Variety, Screen International, Hollywood Reporter, The Business of Film…). To be screened, the films must be updated in your “Marché du Film” line-up on Cinando.com (in “My Data”) in order to have them listed in the Marché Guide.
Online catch-up screenings: after their screening at the Marché, your new films will enjoy additional visibility with buyers and festival programmers thanks to the Online Screening Room on Cinando.com. In early June a sales campaign will urge them to discover online the films they were unable to see in Cannes.
