La Semaine de la Critique/ Cannes Selection Committee


La Semaine de la Critique/ Cannes Selection Committee
Parallel section of the Cannes Film Festival, la Semaine de la Critique has steadfastly remained true to its tradition of discovering new talents. Ever since it was conceived by the French Union of Film Critics in 1962, the objective of la Semaine de la Critique has been to showcase first and second feature films by directors from all over the world. Bernardo Bertolucci, Jean Eustache, Otar Iosseliani, Ken Loach, Wong Kar Wai, Jacques Audiard, or even Arnaud Desplechin all started at la Semaine. Within its research of new filmmakers, la Semaine has always paid great attention to short and medium length films, first steps in the career of a director. It is by presenting their short films that la Semaine de la Critique revealed the talents of François Ozon, Gaspar Noé and Andrea Arnold. Each edition gives La Semaine de la Critique an opportunity to reveal 20 filmmakers.
The Competition category is composed of 7 feature and 7 short films. 3 feature and 3 medium length films are presented in the Special Screenings category.
