Since its creation in 1939 (but it will be cancelled due to the invasion of Poland by the German troops), the Cannes Film Festival attracts, fascinates and annually gathers lovers of the 7th art and curious spectators. In 70 editions, the juries have succeeded in proposing beautiful official selections, they have given prizes and Palmes d'or, but above all they have tried to valorize singular cultural films that contribute to the radiant reputation of the Festival worldwide.
