Cannes 2012: Another Reason to Roll Out the Red Carpet

The 65th annual Cannes Film Festival kicked off last night at the Palais des Festivals in France.  Built in 1949 to host the festival which was founded in 1946, the Palais is still the current destination for attendees to celebrate film artists and the cinema industry once a year in May.

The festival runs through May 27th and concludes with the Closing Award Ceremony where The Short Film Palme d’or will be awarded to one of the ten short films in competition.
