In 2016, the Festival de Cannes has decided to carry out a complete revamp of our digital media. By the time the makeover is complete in 2017, we aim to be able to offer cinema professionals and moviegoers a brand new web environment that will reflect the latest graphical and ergonomic trends.
In keeping with our vocation, the Festival will be seeking to showcase and support the cinema internationally through an innovative and attractive web platform designed in particular to allow access to multimedia content on all types of screen. Our new web universe, which includes five sites and a mobile application, will offer visitors the experience of being at the heart of each sparkling edition while being instilled with the seventy years of the Festival’s history. The sites will be interactive, with the accent on social media, in order to give both movie professionals and journalists easy access to the services they need.
The new digital identity of the Festival has been unveiled on the event-based site at the start of May 2016. From May 11 to 22, enjoy hour-by-hour coverage of the Festival with a wealth of articles, interviews and photos plus audio and video recordings and connect with the 69th edition via the Social Wall and WebTV.
As of 2017, the organization of the permanent site will be simplified and new functions will allow visitors to rediscover the treasures of the Festival archives on line. Recast in line with our ambition of offering innovation combined with ease of use, the coordinated sites of the Marché du Film, Cannes Short Film and the Cinéfondation will also go online in 2017.
While waiting for the revamps planned in 2017, institutional information and the archives of the Festival until 2015 remain available on the current Website.
The brand new "Festival de Cannes – official" app, developed for iOS and Android in partnership with Orange, will also be available for download from the App Store and Google Play before the Opening.
