The Film Is About To Begin!

A quiet town on the coast of southern France, Cannes is again hosting one of the film industry’s most prestigious festivals in May.

Considered one of the leading film festivals not only in Europe but in the world since 1946, the Cannes Film Festival is taking place this year May 15 to 26. Kicking off the festival, which screens films from around the world, will be The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio in this film adaptation of the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Chairing the jury for the Golden Palm Awards, the most exciting part of the Cannes Film Festival, is world-renowned filmmaker Steven Spielberg, whom we know from his unforgettable productions like Schindler’s List and Saving Private Ryan. 

Turkey’s own internationally acclaimed director, Nuri Bilge Ceylan, took the Grand Prix at Cannes for  Far (2003) and Once Upon a Time in Anatolia (2011) as well as the award for Best Director for Three Monkeys (2008).
