66th Cannes Film Festival to celebrate 100 years of Indian cinema

Christian Jeune, the Director of Film Department and Deputy General Delegate of the Cannes Film Festival chose NFDC Film Bazaar and the 43rd International Film Festival of India (IFFI) at Goa to make the big announcement.

In celebration of the 100 years of Indian cinema, the Festival de Cannes will have India as its ‘guest country’ in its 66th edition in 2013. This will be the 3rd time when the prestigious film festival has accorded such an honour to a country after Egypt in 2011 and Brazil in 2012. The exact details of the celebration will be announced later. Though the guest country status will in no way affect the Cannes selection process, there will be other ways to ensure India’s presence at the Festival in a big way. This makes the Festival de Cannes the first among the top five film festivals to celebrate 100 years of Indian cinema.  The Festival de Cannes takes place from May 15th to 26th, 2013.
