Cannes Film Festival
The Cannes Film Festival is one of the world’s most important film festival. It will take place from May 14th to May 25th 2019 for its 72nd season.
Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu will serve as Jury President.
American film director Jim Jarmusch’s film The Dead Don’t Die will serve as the opening film of the festival. It will also be shown on the opening day of the Festival in Beaulieu’s cinema (May 14th, 19.15)
The festival will honour French filmmaker Agnès Varda, featuring her on the official poster of the festival. On the poster she is atop the shoulders of one of her crew during the set of the film La Pointe Courte, in 1954. Agnès Varda recently passed away, and the new poster is a lovely tribute to a French film icon, and also to the entire film industry worldwide.
