Published on February 23, 2007 with No Comments

Roman PolanskiLegendary filmmakers Roman Polanski and the Coen Brothers are among 35 film directors who will make short films for the 60th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival.

The three minute films, on the theme of going to the cinema, will be screened at the swanky star-studded event, which takes place from May 16-27. They will be shown on May 20.

Meanwhile, British moviemaker Stephen Frears – who is hoping to nab an Oscar this weekend for The Queen – has been named as head of the jury for this year’s festival.

“It’s an honour but it’s also a treat, to be able to watch terrific films from all over the world in such heady surroundings. God Save Cannes, as well as the Queen,” Frears said.
