The official poster for the 67th Cannes film festival is put on display. This year's placard, which is always a tribute to the film greats of the past, is a portrait of Italian actor Marcello Mastroianni. The 67th Cannes Film Festival gets under way on May 14th with 18 films showing in the main competition for the coveted Palme d'Or award. Providing the customary dash of controversy, the opening film - "Grace of Monaco" - has been denounced as a "farce" by the late princess' three children. The festival will run until May 24th.
