The Cannes Film Festival

The 63rd Cannes Film Festival - le Festival international du film de Cannes takes place between May 12th to 23rd 2010

If you are in the area it can be a great occasion seeing the film stars leaving the various hotels and arriving at the Palais des Festivals.This rather ugly building is having a lot of work carried on at it to improve it's appearance. Large sections of sloping glass are being errected and hopefully it will improve.
Unfortunately it was built in an era when arcitecure could have been better - 1979. Although modern for the time, it does stick out rather like a sore thumb in my opinion.
