For two weeks, Hollywood will take short-term residence along the French Riviera as a number of original films compete for numerous awards such as the prestigious Palme D’Or, Un Certain Regard, Best Actor and Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival (Festival de Cannes en Français).

Films to watch out for this year include the Spanish psychological thriller Everybody Knows directed by Asghar Farhadi, which will open the Festival. Some of the other most anticipated films being featured include Under the Silver Lake, BlacKkKlansman, Girls of the Sun, Fahrenheit 451 and The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, the Festival’s closing film.
