The 2013 Cannes Film Festival is now only 43 days away and I could not be more excited. I get the opportunity to attend and write all about it! The Cannes Film Festival is an annual showcase of film created with the intention of boosting the industry on an international level. The 66th annual Festival will take place from May 15th to May 26 in Cannes, France.

Steven Spielberg will be the Jury President of the festival. And it was recently announced that Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby” has been given the honor of being the inaugural film for the festival on Wednesday. “The Great Gatsby” will be debuted at the festival Wednesday, May 15th, the same day it is released to the public. The film will be aired in 3D, something that has only occurred one other time in the festival’s history.

The official poster for this year’s festival features Paul Newman and his wife Joanne Woodward.
