Swiss cinema is in the spotlight this Thursday at the Cannes Film Festival. And politics too: Elisabeth Baume-Schneider will take the steps on the same day as Francis Ford Coppola.

Federal Councilor Elisabeth Baume-Schneider and the director of the Federal Office of Culture (FOC) Carine Bachmann will climb the steps of the Palais des Festivals.

The Jurassienne has this honor on the same day as director Francis Ford Coppola, whose latest film “Megalopolis” is eagerly awaited on the Croisette. The Swiss delegation will discover it the same evening, like the other lucky people present on the Côte d’Azur.

Switzerland is this year the guest country of honor at the Cannes Film Market, which is held on the sidelines of the festival. A large delegation of filmmakers, producers, broadcasters and representatives of Swiss institutions made the trip, almost 300 people, according to the promotion agency Swiss Films.

In addition to its marked presence at the Film Market, Switzerland has four Swiss films selected in the official selection of the festival. These are “Sauvages” by Claude Barras, “Trial of the Dog” by Laetitia Dosch, “The Shameless” by Konstantin Bojanov and “Las novias del sur” by Elena Lopez Riera.

Godard’s final film

Jean-Luc Godard’s last work, “Scenarios”, which he completed the day before his death in Rolle (VD), on Lake Geneva, will also be presented as part of Cannes Classics. Godard also described his work on the project in a 34-minute film.

The Cannes Film Festival runs until May 25 and the Film Market until May 22. With more than 14,000 participants, it is considered the largest international gathering of cinema professionals.

Rail suicides will no longer be mentioned. The SBB has adopted a solution that avoids the “mimicry effect” while keeping travelers informed.

When people commit suicide on railway tracks, it is not only tragic, but also a traumatic event – ​​for loved ones, unwitting witnesses, SBB personnel or members of the emergency services. To minimize the number of suicides, public transport companies seek to prevent similar acts through discreet communication.
