The spirit of the Festival lives on! From May 24, a series of events will be bringing Official Selection films to Paris' cinemas as well as in Rennes, Nantes, Lyon and Toulouse. An incredible opportunity for movie lovers to discover the films at almost exactly the same time as the festival-goers in Cannes – and in some cases several months before they are released in cinemas.
CANNES IN PARIS, RENNES, NANTES, LYON AND TOULOUSE
FRIDAY 24 TO SUNDAY 26 MAY - IN PATHÉ AND GAUMONT CINEMAS
For the seventh year running, the Festival's films will be flooding the screens at the Pathé-Gaumont cinemas, for an entire three days of pure cinematic magic. Fourteen films from the Official Selection will be screened in five cinemas.
Initially only available at the Gaumont Opéra in Paris, in 2019 the event is expanding to include four other French cinemas: The Gaumont Rennes, the Gaumont Nantes, the Pathé Bellecour in Lyon and the Gaumont Wilson in Toulouse.

UN CERTAIN REGARD RETROSPECTIVE
FROM WEDNESDAY 29 MAY TO TUESDAY 4 JUNE AT THE REFLET MEDICIS
The Competition and Un Certain Regard form the beating heart of the Official Selection, with pride of place given to works that demonstrate originality in both style and substance. As every year, the Reflet Médicis gives members of the Parisian public the opportunity to (re)discover the Selection presented in Cannes.
