cannes countdown: palais des festivals, 2007

Let’s see if I can keep this up… Starting today, a daily original photo from Cannes, France, counting down to the festival’s opening day on May 12th. Here’s a shot of the Palais des Festivals, prior to an evening red carpet competition screening, shot three years ago when the festival celebrated its 60th Anniversary. The nightly ritual, which plays out twice each evening for the twenty competition titles, includes a procession of arrivals on the carpet as the cast and filmmakers are saluted.

Red carpet coverage from international agencies is in jeopardy this year. Meanwhile, the fest’s lineup was announced today.
