A look back at the stats, facts and figures from Marche du Film Online

Marché du Film Online comes to a close, the Marché du Film – Festival de Cannes announces the numbers of its first virtual edition.

Over the course of five days, the Marché du Film Online welcomed 10,002 participants from all around the world. The most important delegation came from the USA (1,500 participants), followed by France (1,400 participants) and the UK (950 participants). More than half of the participants were coming from Europe with 5,900 participants.

The Marché du Film Online recreated the Cannes experience with conferences, one-to-one meetings, screenings and informal get-togethers and gathered attendees from 122 countries (compared to 121 countries at the physical Marché du Film  in 2019).

The Marché du Film Online welcomed 61 virtual pavilions, home to institutions from around the world and 262 virtual sales agents booths.

There were 1,235 screenings with a total of 42,000 admissions in 59 virtual cinemas. 3,500 films and projects were on the market. More than 200 networking events and conferences - about topics as diverse as inclusion, virtual reality, new technologies or co-production - were held.

"We received lots of messages from professionals telling us that it felt just like being in Cannes," said Jérôme Paillard, Executive Director of the Marché du Film. "This proves that even virtual events are capable of creating moments where we can come and be together. Professionals were able to see the films, but they were also given the sense that they had seen them in good company!"

Pierre Lescure, President of the Festival de Cannes, agreed: "The quantity and quality of exchanges made it feel as if we were there, mingling around the Marché's stands. Jérôme Paillard's teams and their innovative spirit and ability to adapt truly impressed me. I was delighted by the hard work and care they poured into ensuring their sites looked good and were user-friendly."


Thierry Frémaux, the Festival de Cannes General Delegate added: "With this online version of the Marché du Film, Cannes 2020 demonstrated the Festival's underlying dimension: its role as an organization dedicated to industry professionals. The agility with which the Marché reinvented itself to adapt to this year's special circumstances was applauded by everyone from sales teams to buyers, whether in the office, at their villa, on the beach or on the other side of the world. This was a magnificent way of reuniting. It was also a first test run for the 2020 Official Selection films and for what the future might hold for Cannes 2021!"

Cannes XR Virtual celebrated XR creation at the Cannes XR Award Ceremony


The winner of the Positron Visionary Award was THE GREAT C, from Secret Location and Electric Shepherd Productions. THE GREAT C, set in the aftermath of an apocalyptic event, is a 35-minute cinematic VR film based on the short story by American sci-fi author Philip K. Dick. The award was announced by Viola Davis, President of the Jury, and Jeffrey Travis, CEO of Positron during the Cannes XR Award Ceremony held on Friday 26 June at the Museum of Other Realities. The filmmakers will receive a Positron Voyager® VR chair and a worldwide distribution deal.


The winner of the VeeR Future Award 2020 was also announced during the Cannes XR Award Ceremony. After the 9 jury members screened the 13 official selections in VR, an online deliberation was held where they discussed each selection from immersive, storytelling, and creative aspects to select the winner. The VeeR Future Award 2020 went to 1st STEP, created by Faber Courtial. It is equal parts documentary and fairy tale, and tells the story of the Apollo missions.


Cannes XR 2020 was organized in association with Kaleidoscope and Museum of Other Realities; featuring Tribeca Film Festival presented by AT&T, VeeR, Positron and Winston Baker; and media partners VRTL and AIXR The Academy of International Extended Reality.



The 3rd edition of the Pavilion Design Awards to highlight the work of three institutions


The Pavilion Design Awards were held in the Marché du Film Paris offices on Wednesday 24 June. The jury was composed of Pierre Lescure, President, Festival de Cannes, Xavier Cailly, CTO, Bronx agency, and Ben Croll, journalist. After an online walkthrough of the pavilions, the jury awarded the following prizes:


Best Pavilion Design Award 2020: Cinema from Spain

The jury was impressed by the double challenge fulfilled in terms of content and technology. Cinema from Spain offered the visitor dense and precise information covering an impressive variety of topics in a clear and structured way, while including them in a real concentrated Cannes 2020 market experience with an omnipresent bright and colorful design all along the journey, from the welcome desk entrance to the chill out end of the day friendly tradition.


Coup de coeur mention: New Zealand Film Commission

The jury was seduced by the bright and very mastered way the New Zealand Film Commission used technologies at its disposal to offer a modern and unique experience to the visitor while promoting the country's various advantages as a shooting destination.


Jury special mention: SEE NL

The SEE NL pavilion won the Best Pavilion Design Award in 2019 in Cannes for its outstanding creativity which had included Rembrandt references - after having done the same with Mondrian in 2017. This year, in a completely new context with different challenges, SEE NL succeeds in offering a perfect overview of its national industry together with a strong identity.


Panels, conferences and concerts are available for replay for Marché du Film Online participants throughout the summer. The Marché du Film will be held from 11 to 20 May 2021.
