My Responsibility to You
As a member of the Cannes Film Agency, I am thrilled to be a part of a team that helps filmmakers and production companies bring their films to life and reach audiences all around the world.

I love helping filmmakers promote their films, creating marketing materials and presentations that highlight the strengths of each film and showcase its market appeal.
Negotiating distribution deals is one of the most important aspects of my job, and I take great pride in securing the best terms and conditions for the sale of each film. Building and maintaining relationships with buyers is also a key aspect of my role, and I stay in touch with them to provide updates on the films I represent.
Finally, I manage the contract process, making sure that all agreements are in place and that payments are made on time. I feel that my role as a film sales agent is essential in the film industry and I am passionate about helping filmmakers and production companies succeed.
