Given the growing spread of COVID-19, expanded travel restrictions aimed at containing the virus, and the general uncertainty regarding timelines for the lifting of travel restrictions, the School of Arts and Sciences has decided to suspend all Penn Summer Abroad programs for summer 2020.
Experience the ritzy, world-famous Cannes Film Festival while studying how international film functions in the context of celebrity culture, marketing and festivals.
In preparation for fieldwork at the festival, you are required to attend two mandatory introductory lectures—which will be held in March and April on Penn's campus—and view films from around the world. You then spend every day of your two weeks attending the festival in Cannes, France. Your experience includes screenings, classes and guest lectures by prominent leaders in the industry. Students live in dormitory-style housing at the centrally located Collège International de Cannes.
The Penn in Cannes program is exclusively for Penn undergraduate students.
