Cannes Marche du Film - What's New This Year

New this year at the Cannes Market:

Aside from the five year old Producers Network, a new series of events will take place under the aegis of Producers Workshop. See below the jump for more information.

At the announcement of the Official Selection in mid-April, Marche registrants will be among the first to receive the list of films that have international sales agents and those that have yet to find them.

The Official Selection in Private Screenings: Thursday May 19th and Friday May 20th 2011 registrants can immerse themselves in the Official Selection for two days (Competition, Out of Competition, Un Certain Regard). The screenings will be exclusively reserved for those accredited by the Marché.
