Created by the French Directors Guild in the wake of the events of May ’68, the Directors’ Fortnight seeks to aid filmmakers and contribute to their discovery by the critics and audiences alike. Since its inception, the Directors' Fortnight has showcased the first films of Werner Herzog, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Nagisa Oshima, George Lucas, Martin Scorsese, Ken Loach, Jim Jarmusch, Michael Haneke, Chantal Akerman, Spike Lee, and Sofia Coppola, among others. Among the various sections at the Cannes IFF, the Directors’ Fortnight is distinguished by its independent-mindedness and its non-competitive nature. Striving to be receptive to all forms of cinematic expression, the Directors' Fortnight pays particular attention to the annual production of fiction features, short films and documentaries, independent fringe filmmaking, and even to contemporary popular genres. The films are chosen by Frédéric Boyer, the SRF-appointed artistic director, seconded by a team of five professionals and film critics.
