This year, as every year since 2002, BNP Paribas is a partner of the Directors' Fortnight in Cannes.
Parallel section of the Cannes Film Festival created by the Society of Film Directors (SRF) after May 68, the Directors' Fortnight aims at discovering the films of young authors, and celebrate the works of acclaimed directors.
This event takes place this year from May 14 to 24, and as well together as long, short films, and special sessions.
Fortnight notably revealed directors as Martin Scorsese, Jim Jarmusch or Sofia Coppola.
In this context, the Group also supports the Fortnight of La Bocca, in favor of democratization and access to culture. The Fortnight leads educational activities, meetings with directors and education workshops to the image, based on the films selected by the Fortnight. With the help of BNP Paribas, this action extends throughout the year via the projection of premieres, cult films and meetings with film professionals.
