It’s time for the 68th edi­tion of the ever fa­mous Fes­ti­val de Cannes which will be held from the 13th to the 24th of May this year. Thierry Fre­maux, Fes­ti­val Di­rec­tor says: “Dur­ing ev­ery new edi­tion, projects are con­ceived, ex­pe­ri­ences are shared and dif­fer­ent cul­tures are dis­cov­ered: it is this dy­namism that makes the Fes­ti­val de Cannes a true re­flec­tion of its time.”

A quick read through our fes­ti­val pre­view will def­i­nitely get you Cannes Ready, at least for some name drop­ping

to all the cinema snobs if not for the red car­pet. In the midst of all the film buzz is an­other high­light, the Coen Broth­ers. Known for films like Fargo, No Coun­try for Old Men and True Grit they have been se­lected to pre­side over the jury. They have pre­vi­ously had the hon­our of bag­ging the fes­ti­val’s top Palme d’Or prize in 1991 for their movie Bar­ton Fink, and best di­rec­tor prizes for Fargo in 1996 and The Man Who Wasn’t There in 2001. Their film In­side Llewyn Davis won the fes­ti­val’s Grand Prix in 2013.
