Cannes 2013 Preview: Midnight, Un Certain Regard, and Everything Else
Today is the day! The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival kicks off this evening with the European premiere of Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby . Both European Editor Brian Clark and I have been setting the stage with our previews of the Critics’ Week and Directors’ Fortnight sidebars and the Official Competition. We wrap things up with a look at what’s left — namely the Midnight section, Un Certain Regard, and the Out of Competition screenings.
Be sure to keep your eyes glued right here for fresh news and reviews from the Croisette and follow us on twitter at @TwitchFilm, @marshalclark, and @RylandAldrich.
