Georges Goldenstern is the General Manager of the Cinéfondation in Cannes, created in 1998 by the Festival de Cannes to inspire and support the next generation of international filmmakers. Since then the Cinéfondation has developed complementary programmes to help achieve its goal. One of them, the Résidence du Festival, has provided each year since 2000 accommodation and support for twelve selected young directors. Every year, they’re invited to participate to the Open Doors Programme in the context of the Festival del Film Locarno.
