Cannes’d memories

American and French filmmakers joined hands Tuesday at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences to celebrate 50 years of the Cannes film fest. The Academy’s first-ever tribute to a festival brought out an impressive list of Cannes honorees, including Anouk Aimee, Candice Bergen (repping late husband Louis Malle), Roland Joffe, David Lynch, Delbert Mann, Marie-Jose Nat, Steven Soderbergh, Agnes Varda and Wim Wenders.

The evening, hosted by Daily Variety editor-in-chief Peter Bart, was a lively reminder of Cannes’ history and importance. A selection of clips from Palme d’Or winners and memories from guests brought the Cote d’Azur to Beverly Hills for several hours.

“It’s so thrilling to see films by Fellini and Bunuel again and be reminded of their unique voice,” Aimee said. “They had very distinct signatures like Monet or Cezanne or any great artist. Seeing these moments reminds you how the films and directors could fill you with emotions in a few minutes.”

The Academy’s evening kicked off the tribute to Cannes, which continues with screenings of recent and vintage winners at the L.A. County Museum of Art.
