Cannes 2024: ACP-EU Culture returns to the Croisette

At the 77th Cannes Film Festival, the talents and film industry of the ACP (African, Caribbean, and Pacific) countries and regions will be showcased on the Croisette. Once again, the Festival will serve as a privileged platform to help these players make their way in this huge film market.

To enrich their experience, the partners involved in our support mechanism for ACP cinema and audiovisual – the Organisation internationale de la francophonie (OIF) and the Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée (CNC) – are organising a series of events and activities.

OIF highlights include:

  • Saturday 18 May 2024, 11.00am – 1.00pm

The OIF Annual Conference, in the presence of its partners (Fonds de soutien à l’industrie du cinéma de Côte d’Ivoire, Mostra de Venise, Yaounde Film Lab, Ghana National Film Authority), during which the 24 winners of the first Commission of the Fonds Images de la francophonie will be revealed, including awarded ACP bonuses.

Guest of honour: Ms Françoise Remarck, Minister of Culture, Côte d’Ivoire

Venue: Pavillon des Cinémas du monde, Village international Riviera #107

  • Saturday 20 May 2024, 12h00 – 14h00

Conference on best practices in discoverability, with Guillaume Prieur, in charge of European and international affairs at the Société des auteurs et des compositeurs dramatiques (SACD).

The conference will be followed by a lunch organised by Fonds Sud-Nord (a private event reserved for directors of national agencies and international funds, including around ten African NCCs).
