„German Pavilion" at the 72nd Festival de Cannes (14 – 25 May): platform for the German film scene

German Films and FOCUS Germany will have a joint presence in the „German Pavilion"

The „German Pavilion" in the Village International of the Marché du Film has served for several years as the meeting place and point of contact at the Festival de Cannes for the accredited festival delegates from the German and international film industries. Located right next to the Festival Palais and between the sea and the Croisette, the German Pavilion is the ideal place for establishing contacts, exchanging views, keeping appointments, and discussing projects in a relaxed atmosphere a little away from the hustle and bustle of the festival.

The visitors will again have lounges and the sun terrace at their disposal this year for their meetings. They will find expert advice at the information stands of German Films and FOCUS Germany in the entrance area.

The „German Pavilion" is organised by German Films, the national information and service centre for the international circulation of German films, and FOCUS Germany, the amalgamation of the eight large regional film funds. The following institutions are represented:

FilmFernsehFonds Bayern, Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein, Film-und Medienstiftung NRW, HessenFilm und Medien, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, MFG Filmförderung Baden-Württemberg, Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung and nordmedia – Film- und Mediengesellschaft Niedersachsen/Bremen, the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media (BKM), the German Federal Film Board  (FFA) and German Films Service + Marketing GmbH.

The stand number for the „German Pavilion" this year is 122.
