    Cannes Film Festival

    From May 14, 2014 to May 25, 2014

    The essential film festival.

    The Cannes Film Festival is one of the essential events for the film industry, attended by prestigious directors and actors as well as up-and-coming film professionals who have yet to make their mark.

    Probably the most famous film festival in the world, Cannes was first held after the Second World War, in 1946. Memorable moments from the Festival archives include Roberto Benigni throwing his arms around the members of the jury in a rather exuberant display of joy after winning the Golden Palm for Life is Beautiful in 1998, and Björk's rather unusual choice of gown after her memorable performance in Dancer in the Dark, 2000.

    This year, the festival will again sweep us up in the wave of emotions through the work of the year's most brilliant directors.
