The Directors’ Fortnight thanks its sponsors  

The Directors’ Fortnight wishes to give a warm thank you to its sponsors, both public and corporate, and to its patrons for their commitment to the event and their ever crucial support during this difficult time.

Institutional sponsors, first and foremost the Centre National du Cinéma et de l’image animée, but also the Sud and Ile-de-France regions and the Cannes City Council, have shown vital support, allowing us to cope with the consequences of the cancellation of our 2020 edition.

The Directors’ Fortnight acknowledges its long-time official partners, who have also been unfailingly supportive and loyal in the face of hardship.

Thank you to France Télévisions who have also renewed their support and thanks to whom we were able to share iconic films of the history of the Directors’ Fortnight with audiences, through their france•tv platform.
