Making a glorious return after a year in which it could not be held due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Cannes Film Festival is packed full of exciting new work from some of the world's most esteemed directors and most promising newcomers. It's taking place a little later in the year than usual due to pandemic concerns and there will be strict hygiene measures in operation, but there's still plenty to enjoy.
The festival runs from 6 to 17 July.
