The Directors’ Fortnight is organised by the French Directors’ Guild
Director’s fortnight statement
The Directors’ Fortnight would first like to express its support to all the victims of COVID-19 and to all the people who are currently in the front line battling with its consequences.
In the light of this situation, the upcoming edition of the Directors’ Fortnight as part of the Cannes Film Festival cannot take place as scheduled. However, wishing to respect its commitment towards all the professionals who submit their films to the Quinzaine, we are as of now carrying on with the selection process.
As we are fully aware of the seriousness of the situation, we cannot yet anticipate whether we will be able to announce a selection, or when, or in which form.
Following the evolution of the health situation closely and consulting with institutions, professionals and festival teams, the Directors’ Fortnight will inform you of any new decision.
