Every year I look forward to the Cannes Film Festival.
OK, well not every year.
But this year… do you know what, I think I might well be looking foward to it quite a lot.
Each year, about twenty feature films are selected to be in Competition and in the running for the Palme d’Or. They make up the main part of the Official Selection which is screened at the Grand Theatre Lumière.
A certain number of feature films are presented Out-of-Competition in either the Grand Theatre Lumière or Buñuel theatre.
It really is a spectacular time to launch a new movie onto an unsuspecting public – the whole world watches what goes on at Cannes… (May 16-27 this year)
Keep an eye out for Michael Moore’s new movie Sicko – it might just manage to sneak in in time: “This film will focus on the American health care system, and will look at it through an inspection of the system of mental health care.”
