"Great Patron of the Arts", the Louis Roederer Foundation was created in 2011 to ensure the continued existence of the House of Louis Roederer patronage programme which started in 2003 upon discovering the Bibliothèque Nationale de France photography collection. To further its commitment, the foundation has become an active partner of the Grand Palais and has recently become an associate of Villa Médicis. 

Never forgetting that its greatest calling remains fostering tomorrow’s greatest talents, the Foundation takes part in the BnF Photography Research Grant, the Discovery Award at the Rencontres d’Arles, Deauville Festival Revelation Prize and is at the heart of La Semaine de la Critique in Cannes. 


"Four years ago already, we decided to support La Semaine de la Critique because, as part of the Cannes adventure, it was pursuing its passionate quest for a different type of filmmaking, in a charming, enlightened haven. To pay tribute to this uncommon perspective in the very heart of  the business, the Louis Roederer Foundation shines a light on youth and talent with the Rising Star Award that rewards an actor or actress for one of the seven competing films. 

We are delighted to be supporting La Semaine de la Critique as we celebrate a double anniversary: the Foundation's 10th and La Semaine de la Critique's 60th."
