“Between Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris at the opening of the festival and The Beloved by Christophe Honore closing, Cannes will deploy its charm, its mysteries and traditions: fifty films in the Official Selection, dozens of guests every day, hundreds of screenings, thousands of film-buffs. The Carnival of Animals too, by Camille Saint-Saens.”

Twenty films will compete for “Un Certain Regard” in addition to seven special screenings, sixteen films presented by the Cinefoundation and nine short films.
