    Once again the NPA flag will be flying high at this years Cannes Festival.

    As well as our Festival Office to support the many NPA members who attend we also have organised events including a Seminar and Evening Reception. If you are not already an NPA member there is still time to join before this years festival to ensure that you can take advantage of all that the NPA has organised this year. Visit the NPA membership page.

    NPA Festival Office

    The NPA will be centrally located in Kodak L'appartement near the Palais des Festivals (entrance through the American Pavillion).

    The Kodak L'Appartement is a general meeting place for NPA members - where you can be guaranteed a familiar face as well as enjoy complimentary coffee, juice and ice-creams every afternoon - which has a lot to be said for in Cannes.

    The NPA desk will be staffed daily between 10-12pm and 2-5pm.

    We are also compiling a list of NPA members in Cannes and details of the projects that they are taking with them. NPA staff will be distributing the list to leading Sales Agents and Distributors .

    To make sure you are on the list contact the NPA office before 7th May.
