Camille Cottin, who's the host of the next Festival of Cannes

For the 77th edition of the Cannes Film Festival, which will take place from May 14th to 25th, 2024, the opening and closing ceremonies will be hosted by a French actress, a factor that links her to the hosts of the previous two years. We are talking about Camille Cottin, a star of cinema, TV, and entertainment, who became well-known in 2013 for the comedy sketch series "The Parisian Bitch."

The actress will have the honor of being the Master of Ceremonies, following in the footsteps of her colleagues Virginie Efira and Chiara Mastroianni in previous editions. She will introduce the jury, whose members have not been announced yet, that will select the winner of the 2024 Palme d'Or.

Camille Cottin began her career as a theater actress and later gained recognition in a couple of small TV series before starring in numerous French films. 

In 2015, she confirmed her presence on the big screen with "The Parisian Bitch, Princess of Hearts," a Franco-Belgian film based on the series “Connasse” in which she played the lead, earning her a nomination for Best Female Newcomer at the 2016 César Awards. 

She has also embarked on a highly successful international path, attracting audience attention by taking on a variety of roles in films by prominent English-language directors. She has recently appeared in Ridley Scott's "House of Gucci," Kenneth Branagh's "A Haunting in Venice," and Robert Zemeckis's "Allied," working alongside major stars. 

Perhaps it is precisely for this reason that she is an optimal candidate and this year’s choice by the Cannes Film Festival: she is an actress known both to the French audience and internationally, allowing the festival to reach a wider audience and attract people from different parts of the world.

Keep posted as we bring you more essential updates for the forthcoming Cannes festival.
