Cannes Palace

The National Film and Video Foundation will again host its South African Pavilion at the celebrated Cannes International Film Festival, the 65th edition of which takes place from 16 to 27 May in Cannes, France. The film festival is recognised as the most prestigious on the global calendar and participation in it by exhibition or competition is a must.

Every year the NFVF leads a South African delegation to the festival and facilitates the country's presence there. All filmmakers and delegates attending Cannes are requested to register with the NFVF in order to be included in South African activities, including the marketing and promotions of local films.

To register your festival attendance with the NFVF please email your full details (full names, email address and mobile number) to Naomi Mokhele on or Carla Dias on
