The 63rd Film Festival in Cannes

The glamorous and worldwide renowned film festival of Cannes will take place from May 12th to May 23rd 2010.

Like every year, Cannes will unroll the famous red carpet for international celebrities ready to climb the 24 steps “towards glory” and welcome thousands of press officers, sponsors and photographers.

The decision to pick Tim Burton as president of this year’s festival has added an eccentric angle to lighten the mood. As a matter of fact, the creative and imaginative mind of the director might bring us happiness, poetry, humour and sweet madness… To accompany him in this event, there will be Kristin Scott Thomas who was named as mistress of ceremony and an influential jury with, among others, Kate Beckinsale, Benicio Del Toro and Shekhar Kapur.

Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood is to open the ceremony and twenty films will compete for the prestigious Palme d’Or which is awarded to the best film of the year. The Closing Award Ceremony will announce 2010’s winners on May 23rd, and the awards for best director and best actor/actress are the most eagerly awaited…
