The Cannes Film Festival is nearly upon us . This year the Festival celebrates its 70th birthday .
A lot of the preparations have been completed:
- The Jury has been selected, made up of four men and four women, all influential people in the film industry, chaired by the Spanish director and producer Pedro Almodóvar
- The line-up of competing movies is growing, and not yet finalised
- After a warmer spell in April, the weather turned colder and showery again, as is to be expected around the big festivals in May (Film Festival, and Monaco Grand Prix) – by the last weekend in May, when both events have finished, summer will start.
I wanted to promise you live pictures from Cannes, but I’m not sure I will have the courage to brave the congested roads around Cannes … to be decided! 😉
