About This Course

With temperatures still only just above arctic levels and most public places echoing with noises properly heard only in hospital waiting rooms, the Cannes Film Festival may seem a long way off. But now is the time to prepare. A good Cannes, like a good film, requires effective pre-production and focused production. Registration starts in February – so get in quick with all the knowledge you will need.

This unique evening takes you through a valuable guide on how to present yourself and your projects. We will also give you a copy of our “little black book” filled with the 100 best contacts in Cannes.

Topics covered on the night will include:

• Presenting your package
• How to set up meetings
• What financiers look at
• Meeting sales agents
• Attending screenings
• Getting party invites

Price includes a glass (or two!) of rose - the national drink of the Cannes Film Festival.
