Marina Club (Riviera)
For Sales Agents who are primarily in Cannes to boost their international sales, there is a Creative Europe MEDIA area in the Marina Club (Riviera H6). This has tables and chairs, a hostess to take messages and schedule meetings. There is a storage and wifi.
During the sign-up process, you are asked to provide information about how you meet the eligibility criteria.
Accreditation is open to independent European entities active in the audiovisual industry, i.e. those established in Europe and offering European content (see below for the definition of European content).
During the sign-up process you are asked for an affirmation that you meet this and the other criteria
Once you have signed up, we submit your application to Creative Europe MEDIA to check that you meet the criteria and that there is still space left
N.B. We particularly welcome applications from low audio-visual capacity countries, those which have not attended the Cannes Film Market before and those who have received MEDIA support in the recent past.
Once you are deemed eligible, you receive a code. You use this code to register on the website of the Marché du Film either solely as an umbrella participant or to be part of the Producers’ Network/Industry Workshops as well. When we send the code, we also send precise instructions on how to do this.
