The AFC at the 66th Cannes Film Festival

From 15-26 May

[English] [français]

Above all, the AFC is represented at the 66th Cannes Film Festival by the films in the Official Selection and the parallel selections that were filmed by its members. Our associate members are represented by the various ways that they have each individually contributed to the making of these films.

Sixteen "AFC" films are to be screened this year as part of different selections : Official Selection (In Competition, Out of Competition, Special Screenings, Un Certain Regard, Cannes Classics, and Cinéma de la Plage), and the Directors’ Fortnight.

Besides the selected films that they have participated in, some of our associate members are partners of these events.

Once again, one of our member cinematographers will be part of the Camera d’Or jury this year ; the managers of the Festival and Gilles Jacob chose to include Michel Abramowicz on this year’s exceptional jury.

We will be the guests of the CST again this year, which is welcoming us under its tent for the entire duration of the Festival. This central location is where the CNC, the French and Paris Region Film Commissions, and technical industries all come together. It is a highly sought after place for meetings, because it is removed from the effervescence of the Palace and the Croisette (Stand 206-208, Village International Pantiero).

Lastly, we will once again begin sending a daily Information Letter via email. A page will be published each day and will be available on our website. It will provide agendas and portfolios, articles, interviews, and photographs related to the films in selection that were filmed by members of the AFC, as well as interviews with “non-AFC” cinematographers, both French and foreign. Our associate members’ presence and activities at Cannes will be kept updated and uploaded to our website simultaneously.
