Festival de Cannes on French Riviera/Côte d'Azur! 3D Stereo MEDIA has selected - for the last four years - this mythical location to launch its 3D season via a short, intensive "3D Workshop", held at one of the most sought-after and picturesque spots on the Croisette, right along the Mediterranean Sea: the American Pavillion (AmPav). Even though the workshop lasts only 2 to 3 h, speakers and attendees fly from all over the world to be present.

The workshop has two parts: a set of dynamic presentations and panels on a specific topic (under the white tent) and a networking reception (on the beach deck, just a few meters from the surf). The 2016 theme is: "Discover the new landscape of cinema: 3D cinematic VR".

The 3D Workshop is undoubtedly "the place to be" at Festival de Cannes for all things 3D!

Whom for?

For anyone interested in 3D, and especially for those interested in the latest development in 3D content and technology.

When & where?

On 16 May from 10 to 12:30 am at the American Pavillion (AmPav) in the International Village of Festival de Cannes, in Cannes, France, just meters away from the Palais des Festivals, the star-worn, red-carpet stairs, and the Mediterranean Sea.

How to participate?

Attendance is free of charge, but advance registration is required. Proper registration is required to get access. To register, please send an email to
