Descending on the Croisette
The Promenade de la Croisette is the main road in Cannes, France, running up and down the Mediterranean Sea. During the Film Festival, the entire area is full of celebrities, industry insiders, and artistic heavyweights. Film-related events are always popping up as studios, agencies, and distributors look for unique ways to cash in on all the excitement.
This year’s Cannes Film Festival was no exception. The entire coastline came to life as attendees descended upon the Croisette. Some of the biggest films in the world made their world premiere at the festival, including the latest works by Jim Jarmusch, Quentin Tarantino, Pedro Almodóvar, and Terence Malick. The lineup also included first-time filmmaker Mati Diop, the first African American woman to compete in the festival.
The festival also paid tribute to Agnes Varda, who recently passed away. Varda was a leading force in the French film industry, making films such as Faces Places, Cleo from 5 to 7, and Vagabond. Her work paved the way for more female voices in the film industry.
