May 13 2010 - Cannes Festival

There's no controversy with Italy. Cannes has selected two Italian films, one of them didn't please the culture minister, who hasn't actually seen it. He's simply seen an extract and he's complained publicly but not to us. We're free to schedule films as we see fit.feedback

We are lucky in Lyon that we can launch this festival of the history of cinema by showing the very first films ever made. And of course we had to do it on the first night of the festival. We could only do it then, and you know the effect it had on the film-makers who were there, and the actors… the same effect happened with the general public… there were 5,000 people there and suddenly the film-makers weren't film-makers any more; watching these old films, they just went back in time and became an audience of 1895.feedback

The prize which we are awarding is a lifetime achievement award… but as part of the historical nature of the festival, it is a prize which rewards a film-maker whose work often references the roots of cinema. Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarentino do the same of course, but Clint Eastwood is less well-known in this regard – but he often makes nods to previous film-makers and it was he who suggested we spotlight the work of Sergio Leone and Don Siegel.feedback

May 16 2008 - Cannes Festival

This year we wanted to get across what was most important about the festival. Yes, there are parties. Yes, there is the cote d'azur, the business and the glamour. But it's the cinema that is the most important.feedback

Apr 19 2007 - Cannes Festival

We often said in these past few months that the 60th Cannes has to be the best one. As for the selection of the films, well that has been a year's work for me.feedback
