It is important that we all recognise the importance of film and media, and the creativity they encourage. There is an enormous pool of untapped talent around the world, and many of the emerging international festivals provide an excellent opportunity for everyone, particularly young people, to showcase their skills.”

Celebrating its 70th anniversary, the Festival de Cannes is one of the world's most widely publicised events and the most important film festival in terms of worldwide impact.
