Das Filmfestival von Cannes zelebriert das Kino seit über 60 Jahren.
Im Laufe der Jahre entwickelte sich der Französische Verband des Internationalen Filmfestivals weiter und bewahrte doch das Wichtigste: Die Leidenschaft für das Kino, das Entdecken von neuen Talenten sowie die Begeisterung der Festspielbesucher und der Fachleute, die aus der ganzen Welt kommen, um an der Entstehung und Ausstahlung von Filmen teilzunehmen.
11 - 22 mai 2016.
In 2015, Un Certain Regard opened in poetic fashion with Sweet Bean (An) by Naomi Kawase. The Festival de Cannes is honoured to announce that the Japanese director will preside the Cinéfondation and Short Films Jury for its 69th edition.
On the invitation of the Festival de Cannes, the actor Laurent Lafitte has agreed to be Master of Ceremonies throughout the 69th Festival, to be held from 11th to 22nd May under the presidency of Australian director George Miller.
The actor and comedian will host the Opening Ceremony on Wednesday 11th May and the prize giving during the Closing Ceremony on Sunday 22nd May.
The 69th Festival de Cannes will be presided by the Australian director, screenwriter and producer, George Miller. Along with his Jury, it will fall to him to award the Palme d’or at the close of the Festival, to be held from 11 to 22 May.
On receiving his invitation from the Festival, George Miller exclaimed, "What an unmitigated delight! To be there in the middle of this storied festival at the unveiling of cinematic treasures from all over the planet. To spend time in passionate discourse with fellow members of the jury. Such an honor. I'll be there with bells on!"
It was in Cannes last May that Mad Max: Fury Road set out on its fantastic cavalcade across our screens. The film, shown Out of Competition in the Official Selection, marked the return not only of the hero of the legendary saga for the millions of fans of Max Rockatansky, but also the comeback of his creator, George Miller, and of the visionary filmmaking that made him a household name around the world.
The Jury of the 68th Festival de Cannes, presided by Joel and Ethan Coen, has revealed the names of the 2015 prize-winners during the Awards Ceremony.
