The Cannes Film Festival, founded in 1943, previews new films of all kinds. It's one of the most widely publicized and respected film festivals in the world.

This year's festival, which is invitation only, is held from May 15 - May 26, 2013. The event is a wonderful time to showcase films both well known and unknown, and this year's festival kicked off with The Great Gatsby.
