The Cannes Film Festival kicked off on Tuesday with the screening of the musical drama “Annette,” starring Marion Cotillard and Adam Driver.

The festival’s activities will return on the French Riviera with personal attendance for the first time since the beginning of the Corona pandemic.

Cotillard and Driver participated in the opening ceremony as they walked the famous red carpet, along with Academy Award-winning actress and director Jodie Foster, who received an honorary Palme d’Or at an event this year for her film career.

The Cannes Film Festival ceremony was not held last year due to the Corona pandemic.

The 74th edition of the festival was postponed from May to July this year in order to allow more time for the health situation to improve.

A number of hygiene and safety protocols have been put in place, including wearing masks inside cinemas at all times.

“Annette,” directed by Leo Carax, is the first of 24 films that will be shown during the two-week festival.

The Palme d’Or for Best Film will be awarded on July 17.

The festival chose four female film directors to participate in the competition for the Palme d’Or, three of them are French: Mia Hansen Love, Catherine Corsini, Julia Docorno, and the fourth of them is Hungarian Elideko Ennedi.

Russian director Kirill Serebrenkov was also included in the competition for the main prize through the film “Petrov Flow” or “Petrov Flu”, which he worked on during his house arrest between 2017 and 2019.

This year, Oscar-winning Iranian director Asghar Farhadi will return to Cannes.

Where he will screen his movie “A Hero”.

Oscar-winning American director Spike Lee heads this year’s jury, becoming the first black person to hold the position
