Well MFF gets best of the films from festivals around the world, especially the big three-Cannes, Berlin and Venice. And this year is no exception. There are a whooping 12 films from the main competition @ Cannes. We all are infatuated with Cannes for sure, may be because many Indian films are making it into the festival in recent years. Of course none of them have been nominated in main competition. So the idea is to watch best films from the best festival first.
And if you believe festival awards are a definite standard of cinematic excellence, then just watch these films without reading any synopsis, watching any trailer and without knowing anything about them. Awards and nominations are enough. And if you don’t believe in festival awards and nomination, I suggest that you become jury yourself and discover these films as juries of the festivals might have discovered. In both cases it is no point making a shortlist, instead make your priorities.
Four must see films from Cannes,all award winners.
