This summer, Cannes offers you a unique film experience at the Palais des Festivals. This time you will not be spectators, but the screenwriter, cameraman, director or actors…
The Michel Gondry’s amateur movies factory is a well-designed and intelligent device which will allow you to show your own talents in the field of the seventh art, or only to share a fun time with family, friends, and especially with strangers that you will meet on the spot.

I am sure that this laboratory of expression of the imagination will reveal a lot of genius ideas!
But Michel Gondry has especially put within the reach of the general public, the creation of a film with the means and a mentoring, The Palais des Festivals is such a magical place! The techniques, the decorations and displays allow you to discover a few tricks of the trade … The reception and training team is to be complimented as very pleasant and professional.
I confess! I would have liked to make my own film and broadcast it in Cannes … well, I have not been able to do this all alone …
I spent a very good time with my 10 year old son. We quickly adapted to our team with people coming from many other towns in France. We have each put our stone to the edifice.
