The Cannes film Festival or le Festival de Cannes, founded in 1946, is one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious film festivals organized around the world. The 64th edition is scheduled to be held from 11 May to 22 May 2011 with the jury presided over by the actor Robert De Niro. The red carpet will be busy with the competition roster of veteran directors, movie premieres from Hollywood and high profile celebrities and jury members. The selection features 49 feature films from 33 countries including 44 world premieres and a 19-film Competition.
It is a good time to plan a holiday in France, but be sure to book your stay in advance, since the Cannes festival also implies that it will be the peak season and all Canne hotels will be occupied sooner.
