Cannes Heavyweights VIE For Top Gong

Three top directors are amongst those competing for the top prize at this year's (03) CANNES FILM FESTIVAL - PETER GREENAWAY, CLINT EASTWOOD AND GUS VAN SANT.

Three-time nominee Eastwood's movie MYSTIC RIVER, which stars SEAN PENN, TIM ROBBINS and KEVIN BACON, is one of the more high-profile contenders for the PALME D'OR award - traditionally the main focus of the event.

GOOD WILL HUNTING director Van Sant's offering is ELEPHANT and Welsh director Greenaway - also nominated three times previously - will present THE MOAB STORY/THE TULSE LUPER SUITCASE - PART 1.

The festival opens on 14 May (03) with FANFAN LA TULIPE, starring Spanish beauty PENELOPE CRUZ.

On the panel selecting the Palme D'Or are Bollywood stunner AISHWARYA RAI, Hollywood actress MEG RYAN and director STEVEN SODERBERGH, amongst others.
