When we heard or talk about Cannes, first thing that comes into someones mind are great movies - well directed/acted and state of the art. But we also know that fashionable outfits will bombard the red carpet! ;)
The said event started last May 15 and will end on the 26th. Day 1 is the sccreening of Baz Luhrmann's Great Gatsby.

I was happy and proud at the same time to blog about this since there are 2 Filipino directors who were chosen to be part of the event. One of the director is Sir Adolfo Borinaga Alix Jr., he attended the event along with Mr. Zanjoe Marudo, Carlo Aquino, and Jason Abalos (Actors) for the film "Bataan Death March". I can personally say that he is indeed a wonderful and brilliant director for I already seen most of his films like, Kadin, Batanes, Nars and my favorite one - Adela.
I met sir Alix once at our school - Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila where he also took mass communication. ;)
The movie premieres today: "DEATH MARCH premiere in Cannes. It was a difficult but sweet journey for the film. To God be the glory! Thank you to the passionate team who worked on the film. ;)" - Adolfo Borinaga Alix Jr.
The other Filipino Director who made it to the Cannes Festival is Sir Lav Diaz’s “Norte, Hangganan ng Kasaysayan ( Norte, the End of History).” both movies were under art house and experimental films category.
Here are some more of the beautiful dresses wore by different actresses! ;)

Have you seen any of the movies being screened at the 66th Cannes Film Festival?
