2004 • 30th edition

From 3rd to 12th Sep­tem­ber 2004.
In the Fes­ti­val cat­a­logue, none oth­er than direc­tors Steven Spiel­berg and George Lucas salut­ed the Festival’s 30th anniver­sary, in the com­pa­ny, more­over, of sev­er­al rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the big stu­dios and fig­ures from the world of cin­e­ma. The Jury at this anniver­sary event was com­posed sole­ly of women, gath­ered around its Pres­i­dent, Claude Lelouch. In cel­e­bra­tion, the Fes­ti­val screened all the films direct­ed by Steven Spiel­berg. Trib­utes were paid to George Lucas, Fran­cis Ford Cop­po­la, Glenn Close, Chris­tine Vachon, Mal­colm McDow­ell, Richard D. Zanuck and, posthu­mous­ly, to Mar­lon Bran­do. Direc­tor Jonathan Nos­siter and scriptwriter Char­lie Kauf­man were there at the Ren­dez-vous with Festivalgoers.
