Cannes Calling

Invitation for all FIPRESCI Members Attending the Cannes Festival 2019

The poll will be limited to 20 critics, members of FIPRESCI, selected on a first come-first serve basis. This year, we offer beautifully restored DVDs of the classic film “Black Peter” by Milos Forman (FIPRESCI Award 1964 at the 18th Film Festival of Locarno) for the first five participants to sign up, sponsored by the CZ National Film Archives and in honour of the participation of Milos Forman’s official screening of “Loves of a Blond” in the official selection of Cannes Classics.
