Selection announced for the 10th Goes to Cannes May 20 - 23

THE MARCHÉ DU FILM PARTNERS WITH 5 GLOBAL FESTIVALS AND MARKETS FOR THE 10TH EDITION OF GOES TO CANNES 

 

 

The next generation of global talents will be on full display as the Marché du Film joins forces with five renowned international film festivals and markets to celebrate a decade of its industry program: Goes to Cannes. From 20 to 23 May, the partner festivals and markets will showcase a selection of feature films in various stages of post-production still seeking a sales agent, distributor or a festival selection. 

 

These curated selections will be shown during two-hour market screenings alongside talent teams who will introduce their films in front of an audience of industry professionals. 

 

The five festivals and markets who will travel to Cannes to present their selections include: SANFIC Industria, NFDC Film Bazaar, Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival, Hong Kong - Asia Film Financing Forum (HAF) and Thessaloniki International Film Festival. This year, the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival has decided to dedicate its complete selection to Ukrainian works-in-progress that have yet to find sales representation. 

 

“As film festivals around the world continue to face unprecedented challenges and changes, we are coming together to bring positive change to the film industry,” said Jérôme Paillard, Executive Director of the Marché du Film.

“We are proud to offer these major festivals and markets the opportunity to help filmmakers reach global audiences. With Goes to Cannes, we also wish to show our appreciation for these festivals and markets for their relentless efforts to develop cinema and support creativity. I am especially happy to welcome SANFIC Industria which will be joining us physically in Cannes for the first time this year and commend the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival for choosing to devote their entire selection to Ukrainian cinema.”
