Festival de Cannes programming

This year, May 2020, Cannes’ La Croisette is populated only by those who live there. But we always make sure that Tënk makes the annual trip to the Cannes’ Film Festival, and we’re not going to break with tradition this year! Between the Official Selection, the Directors’ Fortnight, Critics’ Week, Cannes Classics and the ACID Programme, each year – normally – around twenty documentaries are presented. So we’re going to offer you three films screened along La Croisette over the last few years. Two of them were shown during the Directors’ Fortnight, a non-competitive event organised by the SRF (French Society for Film Directors) since 1969: “Guy Moquet” (Fortnight 2014) and “Retour à Genoa City” (Fortnight 2017).  “Madame B., histoire d'une nord-coréenne” was selected for the ACID-Cannes in 2016. Since 1993, ACID has been offering a parallel selection of feature films, documentaries and often first feature-length fictions, chosen by filmmakers to give visibility to authors usually (but not exclusively) without distributors to facilitate the release of their movies in cinemas.

Doc Cévennes

Doc Cévennes

DOC-Cévennes Festival de Lasalle was going to be held from 20th to 23rd May in the Cevennes National Park. For the last 19 years, its goal has been to give visibility to auteur films that, with their subject matter and form, offer a unique perspective of the world. This is why every year, 70 movies from all over the globe are presented in the presence of their crews. The festival benefits from the CNC’s Label France-Québec and the SODEC’s continued support for Quebecois cinema.

Visions du Réel

For 51 years, Visions du Réel has been presenting audacious and singular works, imbued with past, present and future realities. For nine days, the Festival makes Nyon a point of convergence where several generations of filmmakers and artists from all over the world find a faithful and discovering public. Recognised as one of the major festivals dedicated to documentary cinema in the world, it presents a majority of films in world or international premieres, and is an essential creative platform for the thousands of film professionals who meet there every year.
