Women in Motion celebrates three extraordinary women

As part of the first edition of the ‘Women in Motion’ programme, designed to highlight and celebrate the contribution of women to cinema, and on the occasion of the Presidential Dinner which took place on Sunday 17 May, Kering and the Festival de Cannes celebrated the commitment and exceptional career of American actress, producer and philanthropist Jane Fonda, two-time Academy Award winner. Kering and the Festival de Cannes also honoured talented independent Hollywood producer Megan Ellison, founder of the production company Annapurna Pictures. 

Pierre Lescure, President of the Festival de Cannes, Thierry Frémaux, General Delegate of the Festival de Cannes, and François-Henri Pinault, Chairman and CEO of Kering, gave the respective awards to both laureates of the evening: committed American actress and producer Jane Fonda, and American producer Megan Ellison. As co-hosts of the event, Kering and the Festival de Cannes also paid tribute to Olivia de Havilland, the first woman to be appointed President of the Jury of the Festival de Cannes in 1965, 50 years ago.

Celebrating the contribution of women to the film industry, the 17 May Presidential Dinner also marked the launch of the first edition of the Women in Motion initiative at the Festival de Cannes. By 2016, the programme will include two Women in Motion Awards: a first award honoring a remarkable contribution to the women’s cause, and a second one to distinguish a young and talented female film-maker, to help young talented women gain visibility and recognition in the film industry.
