Cannes Film Festival - Directors' Fortnight Awards


The Directors' Fortnight Awards (La Quinzaine des Réalisateurs), are a section of the Cannes Film Festival.

In June 1968, the Société des Réalisateurs de Films (Film Directors Society), created the Directors Fortnight Awards during nationwide strikes which closed down the festival that year. The intention was to open up the Cannes Film Festival to little-known filmmakers. As well as to "defend artistic, moral, professional and economic freedom in filmmaking, and to participate in the development of new cinema structures." This sidebar is considered to be the most radical of the festivals sections.

This year there are 20 Full-length films and 12 Short films from 14 Countries.
