Since 1962, Critics’ Week has been one of the main parallel selections of the Cannes Film Festival. It aims to bring out talent and generally focuses on the first or second films of new directors.

The Filmmakers’ Fortnight, formerly the Directors’ Fortnight, is also a parallel selection of the Cannes Film Festival. Organized since 1968 by the Society of Film Directors (SRF), it also aims to go beyond the festival framework with little-known directors from different backgrounds.
