64TH ANNUAL CANNES FILM FESTIVAL


The Cannes Film Festival begins today and runs through May 22nd. The opening film this year is the world premiere of Woody Allen's latest, "Midnight In Paris" which should be released in the U.S.on May 20th.

I've seen the trailer but I'm not really feeling it. It could be partially because I'm not the biggest fan of Owen Wilson but I will definitely go see the film, as I am a fan of Mr. Allen.

There will be over eighty films screened from around the globe during the festival that includes shorts, special screenings and films in and out of competion for awards.

I am loving the poster for this year's festival which is a vintage photo of American film star, Faye Dunaway although I don't get the connection to the film festival, beyond her being an actress.
