Official Film of the Olympic Games

The Cannes Film Festival will host a double screening to celebrate the film work of the International Olympic Committee. Indeed, since the first Games were filmed by the cinema, the IOC has never ceased to encourage filmmakers to film sport until deciding to produce official films. In 2020, the year when the Tokyo Games were postponed, then in 2021, it was the Japanese filmmaker who was in charge of directing which film will be presented in preview. To accompany this presentation and salute this initiative which will also continue for the Paris 2024 Games, Cannes Classics will screen the official film of the Munich 1972 Olympic Games, Visions of Eight, which brings together Miloš Forman, Youri Ozerov, Claude Lelouch, Mai Zetterling, Michael Pfleghar, Kon Ichikawa, Arthur Penn, John Schlesinger.

Visions of Eight features contributions from Miloš Forman, Kon Ichikawa, Claude Lelouch, Juri Ozerov, Arthur Penn, Michael Pfleghar, John Schlesinger, and Mai Zetterling, each given carte blanche to create a short film focusing on any aspect of the Games that captured their imagination.
