A strong presence for France at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival

With five French films in the Official Selection and a French title as opening film, the 2015 Cannes Film Festival has set a new record for French films' participation at this event now in its 68th year.

Thierry Frémaux, the Cannes Film Festival's artistic director, confirmed this fact at a press conference held April 16: there was such a large number of high quality French productions submitted for selection this year that 7 films will be presented in the festival's Competition. This means that 5 French films will be gracing the red carpet this year, without even counting the Special Screenings, the films presented Out-of-Competition, and the program of the Un Certain Regard sidebar. Not to mention all of the French majority and minority co-productions to be showcased at the festival, which show France included in the credits of 27 films in the Official Selection.
