Virtual European Pavilion

The European Commission has supported a MEDIA stand within the Marché du Film of Cannes since 1991. This year MEDIA has developed a virtual stand on the market’s platform. It is only accessible for accredited participants attending the festival, but it will serve the audiovisual community as a one-stop-shop to get information about what MEDIA offers in terms of funding and to communicate and promote MEDIA activities during the festival.

Speed meetings – Meet your MEDIA buddies!

In order to foster collaboration across MEDIA supported projects, the European Commission has organised speed meetings among 130 MEDIA beneficiaries for them to discuss projects and co-operations in which they are interested.
