The 1946 Festival de Cannes programme

For its first ever season in 1946, the Festival de Cannes presented its programme under the auspices of the history of the cinema in daily booklets illustrated by Cluseau-Lanauve. Each day, an important milestone in the story of film is represented, from the Magic Lantern to the first...Festival de Cannes!

The illustrations of  Cluseau-Lanauve are taken from the film Naissance du Cinéma (Birth of the Cinema) by Roger Leenhardt.
