The 72nd annual Cannes Film Festival is currently taking place from 14 to 25 May 2019. Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu serves as jury president. American film director Jim Jarmusch’s ensemble zombie comedy film The Dead Don’t Die served as the opening film of the festival. The festival honoured French filmmaker Agnès Varda, who died in March 2019, featuring her on the official poster of the festival. The photograph used was taken during the filming of her debut film La Pointe Courte (1955), which later screened at the Cannes Film Festival.
