Cannes-tastic: the ICS panellists for the 77th Festival de Cannes

Today marks the opening of the 77th edition of the Festival de Cannes, the world’s best-known and most prestigious film festival, with Quentin Dupieux’s Le deuxième acte kicking things off. As usual, the International Cinephile Society will be present again to cover the festival. Our yearly ICS Critics & Industry grid has become a staple of our coverage, next to our reviews. This year we will have 12 people grading each and every film they see, from the Competition down to the small ACID sidebar (and even in one case the new Immersive programme).
