AmPav’s world renowned Emerging Filmmaker Showcase is now a year-round program! Celebrating the most exciting new voices in short film and documentary, our series of virtual screenings provide new filmmakers with a global platform and finalists are given the opportunity to screen their work at the next physical Cannes Film Festival.


An exciting new slate of virtual programming designed to provide key insights and expert knowledge from a roster of industry thought leaders, while providing ongoing networking opportunities with like-minded peers and burgeoning industry talent. Join us on the Road to Cannes!


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.

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!"
