Cannes Film Festival 2011

The Cannes Film Festival returns for its 64th edition this year and with the big studios emerging from the financial crisis, the glamour is back!

Robert De Niro heads the jury that will decide which director walks away with the coveted Palme d'Or for the best film. De Niro is one of many stars expected on the French riviera for a festival renowned as much for its luxury yachts and all-night parties as its focus on film.

Follow the reviews and interviews as well as the fun and fashion here.
