Live from Cannes: 2021 Cannes Critics’ Panel – Meet the Jury!

In any normal year making the trip to the mecca of the film festival circuit came with hurdles but nothing like what
we are experiencing with this edition – quasi known as a film festival “reset.” Heavy travel restrictions and safety/health issues have sidelined some of the regular folks who make up our annual list of critics but we nonetheless found some mostly Euro critics who’ll be on hand to cover Palme d’Or contender twenty-four offerings. The 74th Cannes Film Festival begins today and we’d like to thank our golden twenty. Next up is the film festival opener in Carax’s Annette.
