CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS
15th - 26th May 2013
Already on its 8th edition, Nisimazine Cannes is one of the highlights of the year for us. Every year we gather a team of young writers from across Europe to cover one of the most famous and influential film festivals in the world.
Candidates should be citizens and/or residents of France, The Netherlands, Germany or Great Britain!
The selected applicants will be invited to attend one week of the Cannes Film Festival in order to form an international editorial team motivated to make innovative and fresh festival coverage. As always, it will be a unique opportunity to gain practical, hands on experience in film journalism and meet colleagues from different countries.
The team will be putting out frequent newsletters and create an e-book covering the Camera d'Or Competition (open to 1st features only) and the short-films present at the festival!
Nisimazine Cannes will be published online and spread through a network of thousands of contacts in the cinema industry. The gazette will have the format of our 'Nisimazine Special' editions, and will contain film reviews, interviews, thematic articles, news, pictures from the festival, etc.
