Cannes Film Awards is international film festival with live screening that celebrates film, filmmakers, producers, photographers and the arts. Our film festival wants to bring new names to the film industry. We want to support new beginning creators. We want to direct them in the right direction towards film art.

FilmFreeway has ranked our festival, the Cannes Film Awards, among the TOP100 MOST POPULAR FILM FESTIVALS out of a total of 10,000 festivals from around the world. The festival is part of the IMDb database (https://www.imdb.com/event/ev0030264/2021/1).

The first winner of the festival was the short film DA YIE by Ghanaian director Anthony Nti, whose film was also in the Shortlist at the Academy Awards Oscar. The festival is preparing online workshops with established artists whose films have been screened at prestigious festivals such as Clermont, Sundance and Toronto. These workshops are in English or French for every filmmaker in the world who wants to improve.

The festival collaborates with Charlie Manton, british film director won the 2019 Student Academy Awards: International Narrative Bronze Medal for short November 1. After the workshop, each filmmaker will receive a special certificate of completion of the course.

The festival collaborates with experts in the field of European film art. We believe that our festival will bring you a lot of joy and happiness from winning and at the same time it will guide you in advancing your profession.

Our festival does not cooperate in any way and does not want to be a competitor of the Festival de Cannes. The aim of our festival is to present independent world films and offer the opportunity to screen your film in the most film city in the world, directly in Cannes, and to such filmmakers who are not professionals.
