the 2011 film festivals is led by robert deniro. jude law, olivier assayas and uma thurman are the most well known internationally on the jury list. last year juliette binoche had a film in the festival, this year catherine deneuve’s film ‘the beloved’ will close the festival. along the way over the course of 10 days directors such as lars von trier and gus van sant will unveil their new films. we will get to see whether or not dennis hopper’s son remotely resembles the iconic actor and there will be bollywood films galore including shekar kapoor’s the greatest love story ever told, ‘with love to obama‘ a comedy featuring indian actress neha dhupia and dear friend hitler featuring indian actor raghuvir yadav as the dictator in a funny moustache. we could imagine that the press conference for dear friend hitler could be the place to be during the festival. or perhaps lars von trier will upstage everyone this year with his new film.
