Red carpet, glitz and glamor: Cannes is the most important film festival in the world. And numerous stars made it to the opening on the Côte d’Azur.
Cannes (AP) – The Cannes Film Festival is back: International stars such as Jodie Foster, Marion Cotillard and Adam Driver walked the red carpet for the opening.
Cotillard and Driver play the leading roles in the music film “Annette”, with which the festival starts. «Annette» is the new film by the French director Leos Carax («The Lovers of Pont-Neuf»). Foster (“The Silence of the Lambs”, “Accused”) is honored with a palm of honor for her life’s work.
In the competition of the most important film festival in the world, 24 entries will compete for the main prizes until the end of next week, including the Palme d’Or for the best film. The jury with its chairman, US director Spike Lee, will announce who will be among the winners on July 17th.
In 2020 the festival did not take place due to the corona pandemic. The year before that, the South Korean satire “Parasite” was awarded the Golden Palm. Director Bong Joon-ho’s film later won four Academy Awards.
