It is no secret that films can convey messages to the world and touch audiences in ways no other form of communication and art can. This visual language is something special, and is celebrated in film festivals across the world.
Festival de Cannes, otherwise known as the Cannes Film Festival, is one the world’s leading film festivals that celebrates the union of art, film, talent and culture. The distinguished festival first set off in 1946 primarily as a social gathering. “The aim of the Festival is to encourage the development of the art of filmmaking in all its forms, while fostering and maintaing a spirit of collaboration among all filmmaking countries” (extract from the Festival policy, 1948.) And since then, Festival de Cannes, has taken off with increasing media coverage and red carpet appearances from many of the world’s most-notable actors in the world of film, among other celebrities.
But the focus of the annual festivals is to celebrate the talents and efforts of filmmakers and their teams who dedicate years, months, days and hours of planning, shooting and editing, creating these visual art stories that continue to captivate the world one frame at a time.
