Film Festival Summary

The Festival de Cannes is an event reserved for film industry professionals. Accreditation is required to gain access to the Palais des festivals. Accreditations are assigned according to professional activity. Requests must be made with your relevant professional organization.

In 1939, French minister for Public Instruction and the Arts (Ministère de l'Instruction Publique et des Beaux-Arts), Jean Zay proposed the creation of an international film event in France. Cannes was chosen for its "sunshine and enchanting setting". Over the years, the great increase in participants and new economic stakes involved shifted its orientation. The Festival is the most watched annual event of the film industry, with today over 4,000 journalists representing 1,600 media companies.

As well as being a meeting place for film industry professionals, the Festival is especially attentive to the talent of artists who contribute to the growth of the medium. Throughout the years, the Festival has become famed for the balance it has established between artistic quality of films and commercial impact. Not only are the films presented assured a unique and international platform, but the Festival as well reveals and reflects the evolution and trends in world cinema while defending the notion of "auteur cinema for wide audiences."
