The Cannes Film Festival is once again underway, welcoming cinema stars and directors from around the world to the French Riviera for its 77th edition. Among the notable attendees is Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos, who is competing for the prestigious Palme d’Or with his latest film, "Kinds of Kindness".

Lanthimos, renowned for his previous works like "The Lobster" and "The Killing of a Sacred Deer", has already made a mark in Cannes with his distinct filmmaking style. His latest project follows the success of "Poor Things", which garnered four Oscar Awards earlier this year.

As the festival unfolds, audiences can anticipate a diverse array of films, including the opening feature "The Second Act" by Quentin Dupieux. Esteemed personalities such as Meryl Streep, who will receive the honorary Palme d’Or, and other luminaries like Demi Moore, Oliver Stone, and Ron Howard will grace the event with their presence.

In addition to showcasing cinematic talent, Cannes serves as a platform for promoting countries as filming destinations. Greece, represented by the National Center of Audiovisual Media and Communication (EKOME), will be in attendance, highlighting its allure for foreign productions and the incentives it offers to filmmakers.
