The 63rd Cannes Film Festival was held from 12 to 23 May 2010, in Cannes, France.[4][5] The Cannes Film Festival, hailed as being one of the most recognized and prestigious film festivals worldwide, was founded in 1946,[6][7] it consists of having films screened in and out of competition during the festival; films screened in competition compete for the Palme d'Or award. The award in 2010 was won by Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, a Thai film directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul. This was determined by the festival's jury members who reviewed films screened in competition. American film director Tim Burton was the president of the jury for the international competition, and other members of the jury for that competition included actors, screenwriters and composers, such as Kate Beckinsale, Emmanuel Carrère, Benicio del Toro, and Alexandre Desplat.[8][9] Other categories for films screened in competition that have their own separate juries for other awards are for Short Films and the Un Certain Regard category.

Ridley Scott's Robin Hood opened the festival[10] and Julie Bertuccelli's The Tree was the closing film.[11] The full film lineup for the festival was announced on 15 April 2010.[12] English actress Kristin Scott Thomas was the mistress of ceremonies.[13]

Agence France-Presse, Reuters, Associated Press and Getty TV boycotted the press conference that announced the line-up for the festival, due to a dispute over access to the red carpet.[14] In a press release, the agencies said that they "may be forced to suspend their presence at the festival altogether" if an agreement was not reached.[14] Days before the festival was to begin, concerns were expressed that attendees might be delayed, or would not attend, due to plane flights to surrounding areas in France being delayed or canceled due to volcanic ash in the sky.[15] Two days before ths beginning of the festival, the just finished film Route Irish, directed by Ken Loach, was added to the main competition.[16]
