Oscars who? We only have eyes for the dazzling fashion moments, captivating films, and more at this year’s Cannes Film Festival! This year’s Cannes, which takes place annually in France, kicks off a new season of must-see cinema. Thankfully, some of the most respected names in the industry are there to guide festivalgoers, critics, and more along the two-week festival, and the red carpet fashion we’ve seen already is putting a year-plus of virtual award ceremonies to shame.
What else could bring Marion Cotillard and Adam Driver together but one of the festival’s most divisive movies thus far? The Oscar winner and two-time Oscar nominee star as a couple raising their gifted two-year-old daughter in the film Annette, which is already generating quite a lot of conversation out of the festival.
Of course, there’s also the star-studded, internationally renowned jury members of this year’s festival, too. Spike Lee is leading the charge as 2021’s jury president. The filmmaker is joined by director Mati Diop, singer-songwriter Mylène Farmer, actress-director Maggie Gyllenhaal, writer-director Jessica Hausner, actress-director Mélanie Laurent, writer-director Kleber Mendonça Filho, actor Tahar Rahim, and actor Song Kang-ho, who starred in 2019’s Palme d’Or recipient and Academy Award Best Picture winner, Parasite.
Along with a host of international artists, some familiar faces from Hollywood are also making the rounds at Cannes. Matt Damon is attending the festival for the premiere of his film, Stillwater, while model Bella Hadid is gracing the red carpet with her eclectic style and more.
