For the first time in its history, the Festival de Cannes will roll out its red carpet in the summer this year.
The 74th edition will take place from 6 to 17 July 2021 and accreditations are open. Delegates can check the registration requirements according to their category, submit their accreditation request online and track their application.
The early bird accreditation (March 15-April 15) for physical Cannes Film Festival will be 20 Euros plus VAT, for physical Cannes Film Market (349 Euros plus VAT) and online Cannes Film Market (129 Euros plus VAT). For the regular accreditation beginning (April 16-June 22) physical Cannes Film Festival will be 120 Euros plus VAT, for physical Cannes Film Market (399 Euros plus VAT) and online Cannes Film Market (169 Euros plus VAT).
Details have not been spelt out on travel and visa regulations during Cannes Film Festival and Market. More details are awaited as COVID-19 vaccination drive has been globally rolled out.
The Festival continues to open its doors to the general public with “Cannes Cinéphiles”, and more particularly to younger audiences with “3 Days in Cannes”. These initiatives, which welcomed 7,000 film enthusiasts to screenings in 2019, will continue in 2021.
Applications for “3 Days in Cannes” accreditations will open at the beginning of April. Applications that were accepted in 2020 will be prioritised for processing.
In order to offset the journeys taken by visitors and their accommodations, which represent 89 per cent of the event’s carbon footprint, access to the Festival will now require each accredited person to pay an environmental contribution of €20 (excluding tax).
The Festival de Cannes is also committed to offsetting the other 11% of carbon emissions generated by the organisation of the event by making an environmental contribution. All proceeds will be donated to local, national and international carbon offset programmes.
For the 15th consecutive year, Pickle will have a special India focused edition for Cannes Film Market 2021 (Both print and digital version). As a run up to the market, there will also be dedicated newsletters and special focus on India participation at Cannes with the objectives of producers, filmmakers, buyers, locales, service providers, market reviews and film screenings.
