The Cannes Film Festival is in full swing with celebrities and movie industry professionals flocking to France’s magnificent Côte d’Azur to celebrate recently released movies and pitch new ones. The annual festival, now in its 75th year, takes place from May 17-28, with Virginie Efira as the mistress of the opening and closing ceremonies.
This year’s festival will see a wide variety of films compete for the legendary Palme d’Or, which in the past has helped films like “Parasite” reach massive acclaim. This year, particular excitement is bubbling around everything from David Cronenberg’s body-horror hallucination “Crimes of the Future,” starring Kristen Stewart, to Baz Luhrmann’s “Elvis,” which stars Austin Butler as the titular character. Other anticipated releases include Tom Cruise’s “Top Gun: Maverick,” and the actor will also receive a tribute.
Cannes is also noteworthy for attracting some of the biggest names in entertainment and fashion, and this year, stars including Eva Longoria, Lori Harvey, and Julianne Moore have made glamorous appearances on the red carpet. Read ahead for the best moments from the 2022 Cannes Film Festival so far.
