ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Created in 1969 by the French Directors’ Guild (SRF, Société des Réalisateurs de Films), the Directors’ Fortnight is a parallel selection of the Cannes Film Festival that showcases a wide spectrum of films and highlights the most singular and visionary practices in contemporary cinema.
Historically, the Directors’ Fortnight is a free-spirited and non-competitive selection and it is open also to non-professional spectators who attend the Cannes Film Festival.
Each year, the Directors’ Fortnight selection showcases films without constraints of genre, format, duration or geographical origin.
Cannes Film Festival is running out of options following the French President’s ban on festivals and events with large audiences before mid-July at the earliest.
