The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is delighted to participate in the 71st edition of the Cannes Film Festival and Marche du Film. As part of our first, historic presence we will be highlighting, celebrating and supporting our country's creative talent and initiating dialogue with the global film community at Cannes.

Film has enormous power to engage, to communicate different perspectives and to open the eyes of the world to other cultures. Saudi Arabia has a deep pool of talented filmmakers and creators who are passionate and eager to share their stories with the rest of the world and to present Saudi Arabia through their eyes and voices.

The Saudi Film Council is hosting a series of panels and roundtables at our Pavilion throughout the Festival and we invite you to come and share our world of possibilities - hear our stories, meet our team and engage with us and other leading industry experts. Please see a short schedule of topics and timings below.
