Workshop Cannes Filmfestival
Do you want to get to know the film industry better - or do you want to experience the most important film festival in the world?
The Cannes Film Festival is without a doubt the most important, most important film festival in the world - and certainly the most prestigious.
In Cannes, the focus is on getting to know the film world itself. You are guaranteed intensive lessons from the acting teachers of CinAct, but we mainly focus on everything that is going on during the festival and that is a lot.
During our workshop you will take the entire film festival as a professional, which is a completely different experience.
Price: 2950 euros. This price includes: air travel, stay, breakfast, lunch package, all local transport costs, lessons and all shows. Whoever follows the workshop to Los Angeles and Las Vegas will receive an attractive discount.
Duration: 8 days and 7 nights
On May 8, 2018 : we welcome you in Cannes. We meet at La Croisette, before the entrance to the film festival.
Together we first collect our professional badges. With this you can:
- take a look at any of the biggest venues in the film festival for free.
- get access in the palais itself. Important to know: access is PROHIBITED here without a professional badge
- gain access to the pavilions. Again: access is FORBIDDEN without a professional badge. Each pavilion belongs to another country or a small association of countries that work together.
- easier access to one of the luxurious nightly parties organized every evening at the water's edge.
During our exciting stay, you will also get 4x intensive action lessons for film and TV from the acting teachers of CinAct. That is 12 hours of lessons.
That way you learn, but you also have enough time to get to know the festival.
On 23 May 2018 you fly back home.
We also offer an option to stay there longer, but that is only possible with clear prior agreements.
