A major event in the world of film, Cannes Film Festival takes place every year during the second fortnight of May. The “Palme d’Or” (Golden Palm) is the highest prize awarded by the Festival’s jury to the year’s best competing film.
The first ever Cannes Film Festival dates back to 20th September 1946. The main screenings take place at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, on the famous Croisette. Becoming the festival benefiting from the most media attention in the world, the presence of stars from around the world during the opening ceremony and the traditional walking up the steps of the Palais, quickly gave it international and legendary renown. Each year, thousands of photographers flock to the city of Cannes.
“A microcosm of what the world would be like if man could make direct contact with one another and speak the same language” (Jean Cocteau), “the aim of the festival is to encourage the development of filmic art in all of its forms and to maintain a spirit of collaboration between all of the film-producing countries” (extract from the by-law of 1948).
With this mindset, the Festival has successfully promoted Italian neorealism, the Nouvelle Vague (French New Wave cinema) and modern American cinema, and has paid tribute to such diverse film-makers as Fellini, Buñuel, Visconti, Antonioni, Losey, Altman, Rosi, Coppola, Scorsese, Olmi, Wajda, Piala, Imamura, Kusturica and Kiarostami.
