Directors' Assembly

In 2013, the Directors’ Assembly became the exceptional platform of worldwide filmmakers, where they exchange with professionals and share with the public their experiences and their ideas. The event takes place in the frame of the Directors' Fortnight.

Edition 2014

What do Filmmakers want for tomorrow's Europe?

Last year, many filmmaker, from different backgrounds, came together for cultural diversity, demanding the exclusion of audiovisual and film services from the commercial agreements between the European Union and the United States. One of the interesting timing coincidences of 2014 is the European elections taking place directly following the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, which gives a unique opportunity to directors to discuss their expectations from the future European Commission and Members of Parliament
