AmPav features a coffee bar, charging stations and free WiFi, a media terrace overlooking the Riviera, the 25th Anniversary of the Emerging Filmmaker Showcase, and the Culinary Program, which features chefs from across the U.S.A and Canada. It can also be rented out for private and public parties and receptions. The new Worldwide Student Program will boast a record number of students.

International sales, global filmmaking models, distribution strategies and DEI initiatives are some of the top panel topics this year. Companies such as Cinetic Media and Millennium Media, Bleecker Street and Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures, Live Nation and Submarine Entertainment, Participant Media and Village Roadshow Entertainment Group have all been selected to serve as moderators and executives.

Project Indie Hope will host a panel discussion on filmmaking strategies in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic. A pair of panels will be presented by the Golden Globes, AmPav’s presenting sponsor this year. The Globes will also sponsor the American Pavilion’s Queer Night, a celebration of the LBGTQ+ community, on May 24 at 10 p.m., accessible to festival badge holders.

All AmPav members can attend the full program. The Roger Ebert Conference Center will host the event. Festival badge holders will be admitted after 6 pm on most days. See the schedule below.

“We are thrilled to be back in Cannes for AmPav 2022 and to continue supporting the next generation of students and emerging filmmakers,” said Julie Sisk, president and founder of the American Pavilion, which is part of Penske Media Corporation, Deadline’s parent company. “This year’s American Pavilion, including the popular Industry in Focus panels and our In Conversations series, feels like our best iteration yet. As a home away from home for the hundreds of AmPav members, the 33rd American Pavilion will continue to provide food, drink, and fun in a venue with arguably the best view in town.”
