The Fantastic genre has proven to be the most relevant film genre of our time. Every year beats new records and drives a fair share of successes in theaters, on platforms and in festivals, keeping the global box-office alive and robustly healthy through some of the most challenging years in recent memory. And the awards keep coming. 

Bringing the family together

2023 becomes a landmark year in genre filmmaking with the birth of the Fantastic Pavilion. For the first time in its history, the Community will have an exclusive business hub within the walls of the Marché du Film at the Festival de Cannes, dedicated solely to the advancement of the genre film industry. This wouldn’t be possible without the support and participation of the distinguished members of our Community.

We create opportunities

The Fantastic Pavilion is a new and fresh addition to the Cannes landscape, proving to be the perfect place to close deals, exchange ideas and effectively reach the hundreds of international genre professionals who attend the Festival and The Marché each year
