The Cannes Film Festival is one of the world’s most prestigious and oldest film festivals. The private event is held annually in the month of May at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in the resort town of Cannes, south France.

Last Year’s President of the Jury for the 2010 Cannes Film Festival was American film director Tim Burton.  This year, the 64th edition of the Festival is scheduled to be held from 11 May to 22 May 2011. The President of the Jury is American actor Robert De Niro.

The Cannes Film Market  |  Marche’ du Film

One of the Festivals annual events is the Marché du Film, which also gathers at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès simultaneous to the Film Festival.  The Marché du Film is a hot-spot for buyers, distributors and producers for the ten day slot, dedicated to meetings and negotiations.   Global film productions engage here to obtain film distribution, film finance and foreign sales territory by territory.

This unrivaled international event allows for all professionals to develop their projects, establish co-productions and partnerships, and present their latest news.  The Marché du Film has been facilitating such exchanges, along with other buyers and sellers of the film industry since 1959, making it a major international platform for film commerce.    Producers prepare their film budgets for investors and distributors to engage in the film finance contributions to the film production.

Foreign sales companies set up shop and show their upcoming film productions, completed films and projects in development.   Many screenings take place during the Marche’ in conjunction with the Cannes Film Festival itself.  Filmmakers seek to show their films and also to finance their movie budget by raising awareness.  Film distributors are also out in force looking for the next hit film and demonstrating their current line up of films, and to find the right projects at the right film budgets to fund for their film slate of pictures.    About 10,000 persons participate with over 400 exhibitors at the Cannes Marche’ du Film – Cannes Film Market at the Cannes Film Festival.

Likewise the stars come out in force to lend their promotional support for the movie projects they are either attached to or have performed in previously.   Directors as well attend and in conjunction with the other talent help raise interest, awareness and film budgets and worldwide distribution for their movies.   Press junkets are common and the glamour of Hollywood movie stars is a welcome addition to the proceedings at every stage.

The Marché du Film, in the words of Gilles Jacob, President of the Cannes Film Festival, is “a hive of activity”, focused on the prosperity and achievements of quality cinema.  The Festival de Cannes would not be the same today without the Marché du Film.  It’s an exceptional and efficient meeting place of the cinema world, uniting artists with professionals and the media, on the French Riviera.
