Representation at Cannes Film Festival: Le Marché du Film

This year we are inviting our Intermediate and Professional Members to submit projects for us to represent at the Marché du Film 2020. We will be meeting with over 50 sales agents, producers and VOD platforms such as Amazon and Netflix. We will be selecting 10 projects over the next month.

What's in store for successful applicants?

Successful projects chosen by the Lift-Off Team will be represented at the Marché du Film 2020. We will be meeting with over 50 sales agents, producers, and VOD platforms. Through our film festivals, we see hundreds of incredibly talented filmmakers who's work isn't seen beyond the festival circuit. This needs to change. Our aim is to build bridges between talented filmmakers and industry professionals to create relationships that can benefit both parties.

This is an effort which will go beyond just our Cannes initiative. We will also be running a similar application process for the American Film Market (AFM) later in the year and for the European Film Market (Berlinale) next year. Again, this will be open to all Intermediate and Professional Network Members.

If you are unsuccessful for this selection, you will have the opportunity to apply again for future film markets as well as receiving other benefits of the Lift-Off Network.

What do we need from you?

At this stage an application will suffice, including a brief synopsis of the project. Any necessary links can be provided. We will be in touch closer to the time if we feel your work aligns with what awe can take to the Marché this year.

Still haven't applied for representation?

Don't Worry! The deadline has been extended to 7th May, and submissions are open for all Intermediate and Professional Network Members. Follow the link below to apply.


Deadline for applications 7th May 2020. If you have already applied but have not yet heard back from us, don’t worry. Your application is being processed and you will be notified in due course.
