Governance

THE FONDATION LES AMIS DU FESTIVAL: 

Sheltered by the Fondation de France, the fondation Les Amis du Festival collects donations from patrons, selects the projects supported by Les Amis and pays the contributions to the AFFIF or to other organizations whose projects are in line with the fondation's purpose. At the same time, the association Les Amis du Festival organizes events dedicated to Les Amis.

The fondation Les Amis du Festival is managed by an executive committee composed of 9 directors from 3 colleges:

 

  • THE FOUNDER'S COLLEGE
    Represented by Grégoire CHERTOK, Chairman of the Executive Committee

  • THE COLLEGE OF QUALIFIED PERSONALITIES
    (3 persons in the process of being appointed)

    The qualified personalities provide the fondation with their expertise in each of its fields of intervention (young cinematographic creation, societal and environmental issues and cinematographic heritage) in order to select the projects of the Festival de Cannes or from other entities, to be supported.

  • THE COLLEGE OF DONORS
    Alexandre BOMPARD
    Mathias DÖPFNER
    Iris KNOBLOCH
    Charles RIVKIN
    Jacques VEYRAT

    In addition to their financial backing, the founders undertake to offer up their time and contacts, drawing on their networks to widen the circle of sponsors. The work they carry out is independent and impartial. All are volunteers, and are prohibited from drawing any benefit from the process, or using it for the purposes of commercial self-promotion.

THE ASSOCIATION LES AMIS DU FESTIVAL: 

The association Les Amis du Festival de Cannes is governed by French law and runs events specifically for Les Amis, such as private soirées featuring screenings of films in Selection from the latest edition of the Festival and experiences that take attendees deep into the heart of the Festival de Cannes.
