📽️Semaine de la critique - Festival de Cannes - International Critics' Week (1962-2021)

La Semaine de la critique (International Critics' Week) was founded in 1962 and is organized by the French Syndicate of Cinema Critics. It was created following the showing of The Connection directed by Shirley Clarke which had been organized by the French Syndicate of Cinema Critics for the 1961 Cannes Film Festival.

Since 1962, a lot of changes have been brought about. However, the ambition remains the same: to enable French Film Critics to support young film creation the best they can and to continue to explore and reveal filmmakers from all around the world.

As the oldest parallel competitive section of the Cannes Film Festival, la Semaine de la critique presents a very selective programming of only seven feature…
