This article reassesses the significance of the Cannes Film Festival and the European film festival more generally. Via an analysis of the local/national/global dynamic of Cannes, it
considers the role of the festival in both promoting and representing French cinema, going on to suggest that this enables a re- or de-construction of the centrality of the ‘nation’ in
articulations of contemporary French cinema.
