Documentary screenings

In partnership with Cannes Cinéma and the CN D Centre national de la danse.
The Festival wants to develop a theme around the image and offers the public a film journey, in partnership with the CND (the new Dance Film Library) and Cannes Cinéma. A programme of films and documentaries on dance will take place throughout the festival, naturally in connection with the shows on offer.
As a result, we can enjoy in particular documentary films based on major figures in dance, such as Maurice Béjart, Sasha Waltz, Christian Rizzo, and better understand the career of Brigitte Lefèvre or the process of creating a ballet, for example by showing Titicut Follies,  a documentary by Frederick Wiseman and the origin of the ballet by the same name.
