<strong>75<sup>th</sup> Cannes Film Festival Begins</strong>

Organized for the 75th time this year, the Cannes Film Festival kicked off with the opening ceremony last night. The head of the jury of the festival this year was the French actor Vincent Lindon, who co-starred in Titane in 2021 and won the Palme d’Or at the 74th Film Festival. Joachim Trier also serve as a jury member. As you remember, Trier was nominated for Oscar for The Worst Person in the World.

“It is a great honor and source of pride to be entrusted, in the midst of the tumult of all the events we are going through in the world, with the splendid, weighty task of chairing the Jury of the 75th International Cannes Film Festival. With my Jury, we will strive to take the best possible care of the films of the future, all of which carry the same secret hope of courage, loyalty, and freedom, with a mission to move the greatest number of women and men by speaking to them of their common wounds and joys.”
