12th edition of the World Cinemas pavilion

  • Cannes
12 - 23 May 2020
The Institut français supports diversity at the Cannes Film Festival.

In 2020 the pavilion, a meeting place for the partners of the Institut français and the French diplomatic network, is hosting discussions with professionals on key issues related to gender equality, cultural diversity, Africa and the Francophone world.

The success of the films supported by La Fabrique and the Aide aux cinémas du monde funding was confirmed in 2019. These programmes have contributed to the development of a solid international network to promote creative cinema and support young talent. The Aide aux cinémas du monde fund has supported 358 films since 2012, 17 of which have been screened at Cannes and 4 of which won awards. La Fabrique has supported 101 projects, 40% of which were completed.
