French cinema at the Cannes Film Festival 2019

All the French films, shorts and features, and all sections combined, receiving their world premieres during the 72nd edition of the Festival de Cannes.

French cinema remains, year after year, a major reference on the world film map, and Cannes maintains its role as a launching pad – whether for international or French cinema – for the year ahead. The festival is also once again the sounding board for French coproductions: nearly 30 majority or minority coproductions have been selected this year, which is very important on a global scale. The world's greatest film festival is hence the ideal place to take stock of France's presence, more vibrant and open than ever.

This year, 7 French or majority-French films are in Competition within the Official Selection, among which the selection's only debut feature (Atlantics: A Ghost Love Story by Mati Diop), and 3 films directed by women (Mati Diop, Céline Sciamma and Justine Triet).
