Call for Entries

(Feature films, Narrative)


Telefilm Canada is currently accepting Canadian entries on behalf of the Cannes Film Festival for the selection screenings of feature films to be held in Montréal from February 24 to March 13, 2020.

Each year, Telefilm Canada invites members of the selection committees from Cannes to travel to Canada and screen Canadian feature films in a private theatre in Montreal.

The Festival de Cannes, the Directors’ Fortnight and the Critics’ Week, are part of the Cannes event but are managed by three distinct entities.  Each delegate will screen separately and evaluate the entries for the section he/she represents. Once the screenings are over, if a film is preselected (“shortlisted”) by one or several delegates, we will inform the applicant who will then be required to submit it online on the festival’s platform.

Shortlisted films will then be screened by the rest of the committee in Paris for a final evaluation and decision.

Final decisions will be communicated by the festival in April.
