“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.”

Thierry Frémaux

Festival Director

cannes3Cannes 2015 opens its doors one more time to welcome the best productions of the year. From the 13th to the 28th of May, keep an eye out there to find out who will take the big price this year.

As a non-public event for guests only, press coverage will be providing the events secrets for us, only mortals. We will have to resign ourselves to only watch them be… but we love that the most, don’t we?

Considered as the most prestigious film festival in the world, The International Film Festival was created on the initiative of Jean Zay, Minister for Education and Fine Arts, who was keen to establish an international cultural event in France to rival the Venice Film Festival.



The first edition of the Festival was originally set to be held in Cannes in 1939 under the presidency of Louis Lumière. However, it was not until over a year after the war ended that it finally took place, on 20 September 1946. It was subsequently held every September – except in 1948 and 1950 – and then every May from 1952 onwards.

Ever since its creation, the Festival de Cannes has remained faithful to its founding purpose: to draw attention to and raise the profile of films with the aim of contributing towards the development of cinema, boosting the film industry worldwide and celebrating cinema at an international level.

The Official Selection serves to highlight the diversity of cinematic creation through its different sections. Films that are representative of “auteur cinema with a wide audience appeal” are presented in Competition, and Un Certain Regard focuses on works that have an original aim.
