A dedicated venue and tailored program of events for all feature documentary filmmakers and decision-makers, plus an exclusive all-day spotlight on docs and on their essential role in our contemporary societies – Doc Day.
Join our community of documentary film professionals!
Throughout the Marché du Film, Cannes Docs offers multiple opportunities to all professionals working with creative docs, particularly specialized sales agents and top international festival programmers.
This unique networking platform brings together all the major players in the field for a series of customized events including panels, talks, special screenings, workshops, opportunities to consult with experts, one-on-one meetings, tutoring, as well as selected showcases of docs-in-progress from all around the world (Norway, Mali, Germany, Kenya, Palestine, Chile, Algeria, Canada, Egypt, Argentina, Georgia, South Africa, Mexico, Burkina Faso, Tunisia…).
Cannes Docs is particularly relevant for producers with films in advanced stages of production who are looking for a festival premiere and/or for a sales agent, or for sellers and programmers looking for the latest undiscovered documentary gems.
It’s also a B-to-B platform designed to connect you to other documentary professionals, promote your festival, company or organization, expand your network and develop your projects. To access Cannes Docs, head over to the Riviera, at the heart of the Marché du Film, and make sure you are registered for a standard Marché du Film badge.
The program wraps with Doc Day, a full-day event composed of keynotes, panel discussions and masterclasses, featuring inspiring doc filmmakers in selection at Cannes and high level industry executives.
Doc Day is the perfect opportunity to take a step back and reflect on how the documentary genre is continuously evolving as a marketplace, as an artistic form, and as a tool to raise awareness and drive global change. Doc Day also includes the Doc Lovers Mixer, on the beautiful Plage des Palmes, a not-be-missed networking cocktail bringing together the entire doc community over a shared drink and enthusiasm for docs. Doc Day ends with the screening of an exclusive creative documentary, presented by our partner, Acid.
