May 13, 2024

Yorgos Lanthimos, Andrea Arnold, Sean Baker, Karim Aïnouz and Miguel Gomes compete for the Palme d’Or with their shot-on-KODAK film titles.

Kodak Motion Picture and Entertainment is celebrating twenty-nine productions shot on film at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival. Five on-film titles Anora, Bird, Grand Tour, Kinds Of Kindness and Motel Destino, will compete for the Palme d’Or, with an additional four titles featured in Un Certain Regard and sixteen titles across Directors’ Fortnight and Critics’ Week captured on film. 16mm film continues to prove its popularity and relevance with 23 of the on-film titles at the festival choosing it as their capture medium.

“It’s wonderful to see continued recognition of artists who prioritise film capture at Cannes,” said Vanessa Bendetti, head of Kodak Motion Picture and Entertainment. “The shot-on-film productions at the festival this year are testimony to the medium’s cinematic value and that you can successfully shoot film all around the world at varied budget levels. Congratulations to each of the exceptional analog filmmakers selected for Cannes 2024. Kodak is proud to support your creative visions.”
