ABSTRACT
This article reports that the Festival de Cannes in Cannes, France will return its awards ceremony to a Sunday evening spot after two years of handing out the honors on a Saturday. Artistic director Thierry Fremaux said the move will allow more space for films. The festival's 59th edition will run May 17-28, 2006. The ceremony shift was announced at an informal media meeting with Cannes' new managing director, Catherine Dernier, who started Oct. 10. Dernier replaced Veronique Cayla, who left during the summer to head the Center National de la Cinematographic.
