Cannes Festival in Focus

In it’s 70th year, Cannes is the dowager empress of film festivals. The event may be invite only, but once part of the film jury, members are treated as family, coming together year after year to celebrate and award the best in the industry.

While red carpet fashion and frills crowd Instagram as Palm d’Or hopefuls parade, we’ve taken a deeper look at the festival. The following feeds include directors, actors—even a jury president—not so much undiscovered as they are pros, making their quietly distinguished mark in the social space.
