Cannes Film Festival 2021: the best celebrity looks from the red carpet so far

Diane Kruger, Helen Mirren and Andie MacDowell were on hand to provide some midweek glamour

There are lights, there are cameras and there is most certainly action under way at the Cannes Film Festival.

The cinematic celebration, now in its 74th year, is in full swing in the French Riviera, welcoming back premieres, screenings and press conferences aplenty after the event was cancelled last year, owing to the pandemic.

The festival, which began on Tuesday and runs until Saturday, July 17, brings together some of the film industry's most highly anticipated titles, as well as some of the silver screen's most famous faces.

This year's Cannes will screen a mix of international and Hollywood films, with the 2021 jury presided over by BlacKkKlansman director Spike Lee.

Kicking off proceedings on Tuesday was a showing of Leos Carax's Annette, along with a star-studded opening ceremony. The second day of the festival welcomed screenings of The Velvet Underground, a Todd Haynes documentary focused on the story of the rock band, and Jane by Charlotte, a film about celebrated actress Jane Birkin, directed by her daughter, Charlotte Gainsbourg.

The day's biggest hitter, however, was the premiere of Tout S'est Bien Passe (Everything Went Fine), a drama written and directed by France's Francois Ozon. Starring Sophie Marceau, Andre Dussollier and Charlotte Rampling, the film is centred on a daughter dealing with her elderly father's declining health.

The screening drew a number of stars to the red carpet, including Andie MacDowell, Troy actress Diane Kruger and supermodel Candice Swanepoel. Helen Mirren, meanwhile, stepped out to watch The Velvet Underground, while a Chopard party attracted the part-Palestinian supermodel Bella Hadid.

Scroll through the gallery above to see which stars were in attendance at day two of the Cannes Film Festival.

The 74th Cannes Film Festival was delayed until July from its usual May dates, with the aim of being able to host in-person events once more. While the programme has made a return this year, there are some changes afoot.

The festival has introduced an advance booking system for screenings, those attending from outside the EU must submit to regular Covid-19 testing, and mask-wearing is mandatory.

The 2021 event marks the first major fully fledged film festival to be held since the pandemic began, and is set to welcome premieres of films including The French Dispatch, Stillwater and Mothering Sunday.

Education reform in Abu Dhabi

 

The emirate’s public education system has been in a constant state of change since the New School Model was launched in 2010 by the Abu Dhabi Education Council. The NSM, which is also known as the Abu Dhabi School Model, transformed the public school curriculum by introducing bilingual education starting with students from grades one to five. Under this new curriculum, the children spend half the day learning in Arabic and half in English – being taught maths, science and English language by mostly Western educated, native English speakers. The NSM curriculum also moved away from rote learning and required teachers to develop a “child-centered learning environment” that promoted critical thinking and independent learning. The NSM expanded by one grade each year and by the 2017-2018 academic year, it will have reached the high school level. Major reforms to the high school curriculum were announced in 2015. The two-stream curriculum, which allowed pupils to elect to follow a science or humanities course of study, was eliminated. In its place was a singular curriculum in which stem -- science, technology, engineering and maths – accounted for at least 50 per cent of all subjects. In 2016, Adec announced additional changes, including the introduction of two levels of maths and physics – advanced or general – to pupils in Grade 10, and a new core subject, career guidance, for grades 10 to 12; and a digital technology and innovation course for Grade 9. Next year, the focus will be on launching a new moral education subject to teach pupils from grades 1 to 9 character and morality, civic studies, cultural studies and the individual and the community.
