Cannes Film Festival Opening Night Premiere

Hollywoodnews.com: On May 12, the Cannes Film Festival will start its 63rd edition. The president of the jury is Tim Burton and the jury consists of Kate BECKINSALE – Actress / United Kingdom, Giovanna MEZZOGIORNO – Actress / Italy, Alberto BARBERA – Director of the National Museum of Cinema / Italy, Emmanuel CARRERE – Author – Screenwriter – Director / France, Benicio DEL TORO – Actor / Porto Rico,Victor ERICE – Director/ Spain, Shekhar KAPUR – Director – Actor – Producer / India and Alexandre DESPLAT – Composer / France.

For this year’s line-up SCROLL DOWN.

Below letter from one of the Cannes Film Festival bosses, Thierry Frémaux:

“As happens every year, the Festival´s programme was launched in January with the announcement of who would be the President of the Jury: Tim Burton! The news, which was unanimously greeted with enthusiasm, put the world of film in a good mood. The choice of Tim Burton to head the next edition of the Festival brings with it a touch of his wonderful fantasy and imagination, which should perfectly suit this ten-day event, where as we all know, anything can happen.

By asking this visionary cinematographer to lend his support to us in 2010, Gilles Jacob and I also wished to symbolically reiterate our will to continue to encourage the future. In these times, where intense preparation is going on, we must constantly be on the lookout for new things that are being invented, and without giving in to dizzying pictures and new technologies, we must be able to identify the innovations that will bolster the Festival’s identity so that it evolves harmoniously between creation and industry.

Also, and especially, the future of the film industry. Production is doing well, and each year the number of films that are sent to us rises. At the heart of this growth, this diversity, we must make sure we preserve our sensitivity to what is being created, what is happening, what is promising, all around the world.

Tim Burton, who stands mid-way between cinéma d’auteur (art-house cinema), popular cinema and genre films, has been able to carve out his own place on the cinematographic landscape. We hope that all of this will contribute to creating the 2010 Selection panorama in a way that keeps intact artists’, professionals’, journalists’ and film buffs’ desires to discover, and their wish for ‘films that knock on the doors of our dreams’, as the head of our jury so beautifully said.”
