Cannes 2023 selection features 29 productions shot on KODAK film

Wes Anderson, Alice Rohrwacher, Aki Kaurismaki and Ken Loach 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 2023 Cannes Film Festival. Four on-film titles, Asteroid City, Fallen Leaves, La Chimera and The Old Oak, will compete for the Palme d’Or, with an additional three titles featured in Un Certain Regard and nine titles across Directors’ Fortnight and Critics’ Week captured on film. 2023 also marks the centennial of 16mm film, and as proof of the format’s continued relevance and popularity, seventeen of the on-film titles at the festival chose 16mm as their capture medium.

Out of competition Maïwen’s Jean du Barry, Sam Levinson’s The Idol, Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flowers Moon and Steve McQueen’s The Occupied City each captured on KODAK 35mm film.

“Congratulations to all of the motion picture artists whose work has been selected for Cannes 2023,” said Vanessa Bendetti, Global Managing Director of Kodak Motion Picture and Entertainment. “To have so many shot-on-film productions screening and competing at the festival this year is undeniable testimony to the intrinsic value of the film medium and those who create with it. It is Kodak’s distinct honor to partner with these filmmakers to help bring their artistic visions to the screen.”
