Join our community of documentary film professionals!

Every year during the Marché du Film, Cannes Docs offers a dedicated venue and tailored program of events for all feature documentary film professionals – filmmakers and industry decision-makers alike. At the heart of the world’s n°1 film festival and market, Cannes Docs reaffirms the fundamental place and role of the documentary genre, and works at ever-strengthening its organic integration within the global cinema industry.

In 2020, Cannes Docs went digital, as part of the Marché du Film Online platform. Most of the usual events were transposed online, while trying our best to preserve the program’s specific identity and philosophy. To be as useful, relevant and welcoming as possible for documentary filmmakers of all backgrounds and for all of the industry’s predominant players.


Throughout the Marché du Film, Cannes Docs offers multiple opportunities to documentary filmmakers and to all professionals working with feature 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.

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.

More generally, it’s also a B-to-B platform designed to connect with peers and documentary film professionals of all types, promote your festival, company or organization, expand your network and develop your projects.

To all documentary film professionals and documentary filmmakers out there, please add Cannes Docs to your agenda and join us at the Croisette’s – virtual! – one-stop-shop for all things documentary inside the Marché du Film Online.

The one good thing about going virtual is that it has never been that easy to participate, so do not hesitate to take part and let’s make the most of this unprecedented online Cannes Docs edition. Remotely, yet collectively anyhow. It’s time to stand together more than ever!
