In 2000, the Cannes International Film Festival established Cinéfondation, a not-for-profit organization that promotes the work of student filmmakers. This year, Emir Kusturica headed a Cannes jury comprising Mary Lea Bandy, MoMA’s Chief Curator of Film and Media, the French actress/director Zabou Breitman, the Russian actress Ingeborga Dapkunaite, and the French animator Michel Ocelot to award four student films from a selection of 20. These four films—from England, Germany, Mexico, and Serbia—are shown in this program.
Organized by Laurence Kardish, Senior Curator, Department of Film and Media. Thanks to Laurent Jacob, who organized the competition in Cannes.
