Festivals Hub


The one and only space at the Marché du Film dedicated exclusively to film festivals and markets from around the world!

The Marché du Film and Cinando, with the support of FIAPF, teamed up in 2021 to offer a brand-new, exclusive area designed to be a welcoming space to create and promote synergies between film festivals of all types and from all over the world.

The Festivals Hub is equipped with meeting tables, a workshop space, and a lounge for film festival & market organizers to gather & connect in a dedicated area.

The Hub is accessible for free (subject to space availability) to all festival and market teams holding a Marché du Film badge.

📍 Designed in consultation with programmers and directors from over a dozen film festivals, the Festivals Hub is located in the Riviera exhibition hall of the Palais (H6) next to Cannes Docs.

Mingle with other film festival professionals

This exclusive space provides a laid-back environment where you can grab a coffee between meetings and screenings. Tables are also available for your team to take meetings away from the busy crowds, and you have the chance to meet service providers that can help take your festival to the next level with their dedicated solutions.

Promote your festival and activities

Promote your festival activities via digital or physical signposting, available as part of our promotional packages. Or book private tables in the Hub to showcase your initiatives for maximum exposure to the rest of the industry. Moreover, an enclosed area is also available for privatization in the Hub for hosting private workshops (up to 10 people).

Organize and take part in conferences

The Festivals Hub also offers a limited audience the opportunity to attend in-person panels on one of the official Marché du Film stages in Cannes, while respecting social distancing measures. The stages, all equipped with TV sets, allow for all of the conferences to be streamed live and made available for replay on the online Marché du Film platform after the event.
