This year marks the 64th Cannes Film Festival celebration.  Air France is celebrating the festival’ss 64th year, by encouraging its passengers to take part in their in-flight movies competition, on their long-haul flights.  On their facebook page, Air France have invited people to choose their favourite from a list of around twenty International and French movies from the last decade.

This sounds like fun, and I have a feeling that a lot of people will join in the fun.    In-Flight movies are generally okay, but if you are a true movie buff.  Chances are you may have already seen the selected movie choice.  However, if you are going to fly with Air France this Summer.  You will at least have an idea of what in-flight movies will be showing.  If you don’t like the choice,  simply take your own.

Ladies Day.

Four female directors have film entries into the main competition of the Cannes Film Festival this year.  They are Julia Leigh, Lynne  Ramsay, Maïwenn Le Besco and Naomi Kawase.  World famous for attendance from the lastest Hollywood stars and Internation Film Makers around the Globe.

Actor Robert De Niro will served as the president of the jury for the main competition.   An 11 day event, there is still time to get to the event.  If you are based in Europe, the Cannes Film Festival is only 2 or 3 hours away at best.  You can make the last week or last few days.

The Cannes Film Festival takes place from 11th May 2011 to 22 May 2011.
