Cannes is arguably the film industry’s most prestigious festival.

Founded in 1946, the annual event has become a landmark showcase for the biggest films in and outside of competition – with this year’s batch including Martin Scorsese’s Killers Of The Flower Moon to Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny.

The biggest prize is the Palme d’Or, which was originally introduced in 1955. Past winners have included Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite and Jane Campion’s The Piano.

This year’s festival runs from Tuesday May 16 to Saturday May 27. The closing film is Pixar’s Elemental, directed by Peter Sohn (The Good Dinosaur).
