    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, 2016 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.
