The Festival de Cannes is one of the most widely publicized events in the world and certainly the most important film festival in terms of worldwide impact. With its 75th season about to get underway, it continues to be a major force in promoting films from all over the globe.
Cannes is a great platform for aspiring filmmakers to showcase their work and find an audience. The Competition offers the chance to win a Palme d’or, while the Short Film Corner is perfect for networking and promoting your film.
In 2010, the Festival established “Cannes Court Métrage” to unite these two areas in a complementary way that would provide a broad overview of short film production globally, as well as encourage creativity among short film artists.
