The 2014 Cannes Film Festival may not be over just yet, but we think it's the perfect time to take a look back at some of the most jaw-dropping dresses we've seen grace the red carpet. Over the years...
I'm caught up in the whirlwind of the world's biggest film festival, Cannes. Here, young filmmakers are realizing their dreams. My turn will come on Thursday afternoon when I present Jutra on the Croisette at Cannes. My stomach is doing flips at the thought of going onstage to introduce my film. But I'm also deeply proud.

I was filled with an incredible energy as I stepped onto the red carpet. This is the top of the mountain in the narrative film world, and walking up those steps provided a powerful reminder of my love for this craft. Once you've had a taste of the red carpet, you simply want more!
