Cannes Film Festival
NAME OF FESTIVAL: Cannes Film Festival | Festival de Cannes
WHERE: Cannes, France, Europe
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL: “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 Lumiere. 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.”
Director Spike Lee will serve as President of the Jury at the next Cannes Film Festival. The 73rd Cannes Film Festival will take May 12 to 23, 2020.
