50th Directors’ Fortnight May 9-19, 2018

The Directors’ Fortnight is literally the most open of all the Cannes sections. Meaning that besides presenting international and world premiers, which is the least you’d expect of an important section within the greatest/biggest film festival in the world, it is not bound by any obligations. Its concern is to bring new talents to the fore, surprise audiences with new and unknown facets of known talents; to vary the pleasures, in a word, to show what’s most exciting in world cinema and what rises to the top among the new trends.

Edouard Waintrop, Artistic Director of the Directors’ Fortnight
