Cannes Film Festival

Histoire_Festival_EN«The Festival de Cannes is a celebration of cinematographic art. We exist to showcase the new writing, new genres and new visual innovations of our time. Every year in May, Cannes gives a sort of snapshot — both ephemeral and lasting, when one adds up the years — of what constitutes the art of cinema.»
