AmPav Worldwide Student Program

Jumpstart your Career!


Started in 2000, The American Pavilion’s L.A. Intensive grew out of helping Cannes alumni transition from film school to Hollywood. Geared specifically toward students and recent grads planning to relocate to L.A.


Filmmakers, submit your shorts to this mini “festival within a festival!”


Since 1989, AmPav has offered students the opportunity to attend the Cannes International Film Festival, participating in internships, panels, roundtables, networking events, and the world's largest film market.


After touring local markets and vineyards, learn how to prepare meals for AmPav’s restaurant and event menus for VIP guests, all from our beachside venue!

The American Pavilion Student Program sparked a fire that has become the work of my life, and I will always be grateful for that first access into a world I thought was totally inaccessible to me. Thank you, and carry on!"
