The Cannes International Film Festival may or may not be over-rated in India, but around the world, it is seen as a brilliant platform to showcase World Cinema.

This year, the coveted film festival is starting from 11 May and will go on for 10 days, ending on 22 May. While Indian beauties, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor and Mallika Sherawat have flown down to the French Riviera to perform their duties, there's obviously a lot more to this film festival than just compare looks and make-up on the red carpet.
