The Marche du Film inaugurates the Next Pavilion, a new hub dedicated to the future of cinema, situated in the heart of the Village International Pantiero.

Jerome Paillard, Executive Director of the Marche du Film said: "One of the goals of the Marche is to anticipate on the needs of our participants and to explore and highlight as far as possible new potential and possibilities for the film industry. In this sense, NEXT becomes a privileged lab in Cannes to kick start ideas, engage professionals and examine new challenges ahead".

Next is hosting a wide range of exhibitors who will share new economic models with the Marche's participants. These exhibitors include: B3 Biennal of the Moving Image, Cineuropa, Cinext, Connect 4 Climate, Cross Video Days, Gathr Films, IndieFlix, Kweb, Mubi, Power to the Pixel, Touscoprod, Wallimage, and We Want Cinema. The hub will be active for the duration of the 67th Festival de Cannes.

In the Next Pavilion, a series of events will be available for Marche du Film participants, including round-tables, workshops, special presentations and networking events with leading players on new and alternative forms of storytelling, financing, production, and the distribution of films.

The opening round-table in the Next Pavilion will focus on the realities of a digital demand-driven age, hosted by speaker Philip Knatchbull, CEO of Curzon Cinema World. It will be followed by a series of round-tables, moderated by film and media expert Michael Gubbins of Sampomedia, on how to work the crowds, build awareness and empower audiences.

Special Presentations
The pavilion will also host a number of funding presentations.

Power to the Pixel, the digital and cross-media market and company, is bringing a variety of international heads of funds and commissioners active in backing new types of entertainment products, audience engagement tools and cross-media projects.

Wallimage, the funds from Wallonia, will introduce seven companies active in the fields of immersive experiences, virtual realities and connected objects.

Cross Video Days, the European cross-media content market, will host a pitching session of cinema and transmedia projects. The four selected projects are: Le Judas by Ziad Touma (Canada), Dream Channel by Jonny Peters (Australia), Muleum by Julie Friis Walenciak (Denmark) and the mockumentary Houston, Imamo Problem! by Ziga Virc (Slovenia).
