The Marché du Film's Doc Corner is significantly upgrading in 2016!

  • An extended space in a whole new location, at the Riviera,
  • An integrated 21-seat market screening room, on the spot, entirely dedicated to documentaries,
  • A first-ever Marché du Film – Ford Foundation partnership around the JustFilms program, in a shared commitment to support advocacy filmmakers in raising global awareness on social justice issues, help their works make a difference and challenge inequality.

And, as always:

  • Various exhibitors representing the international documentary scene (leading sales agents, top-class festivals and specialized organizations),
  • A video library comprised of 250 feature documentaries,
  • A full program of activities and events.

The 2016 Doc Corner is supported by:

Tuesday, May 17th is DOC DAY in Cannes!

Be sure to mark your agenda for this entire day dedicated to documentary cinema, with a full afternoon of discussions and presentations by captivating filmmakers and top-ranked industry professionals. Rising global awareness on social justice issues through documentary filmmaking will constitute the core subject of this afternoon of talks and sneak previews.

Right after, the Doc Lovers Mixer will joyfully close the day at the Plage des Palmes from 6 to 8 pm, welcoming the entire documentary film community for an unmissable networking cocktail (exclusively for invited market badge holders or by personal invitation).

We hope you can save the date and join us for this first-ever Doc Day in Cannes!

More to come shortly.
