  • A thorough plan for the trip including meetings with contacts.

Please note that a maximum of two applications per applicant per year may be awarded, unless approved by the Chief Executive.

How to apply

Producer International Travel Applications are always open and you can apply at any time. However, due to the volume of Cannes applications we receive we take these in a separate funding round about two months prior to the festival.

You will need to register for an account to apply online at

Please start this process as early as possible as there can be a new account confirmation time of 24 hours, although it will likely be less.

What you need

  • Proposal – including objectives, plan, and budget
  • Project or slate – material from the project/s you are proposing to pitch
  • Background – information about any other Film Commission funding or projects
