Even the Cannes jury president, director Pedro Almodovar, had to succumb to the Will Smith show, admitting he'd always wanted to work with the movie star. The Golden Camera Award will be given to a first film appearing in any section of the festival by a jury presided over by French actress Sandrine Kiberlain, while Romanian director Cristian Mungiu will head a jury that will provide an award to the short and student films in the Cinefondation section. "Welcome to the 70th Cannes festival".

He added: "I personally don't perceive the Palme d'Or [should be] given to a film that is then not seen on the big screen".

He added: "In my home, Netflix has had absolutely no effect on what they go to the movie theater to watch, go to the cinema to be humbled by certain images and stay home for others - no cross".

Nineteen films from around the world will be competing for the prestigious Palme d'Or award as the top movie at the festival, including productions by directors Sergei Loznitsa of Ukraine and Andrei Zvyagintsev of Russian Federation.

Twilight star Pattinson will be back in Cannes for the premiere of Good Time, a bank-robber drama starring Jennifer Jason Leigh and Captain Phillips' Barkhad Abdi and indie director Noah Baumbach will make his south of France debut with The Meyerowitz Stories, starring Emma Thompson, Dustin Hoffman, Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller, about the family of an acclaimed author.

"I wish you 12 days full of enthusiasm", Oscar-winning Iranian director Asghar Farhadi said as he declared the festival officially open alongside actress Lily-Rose Depp, daughter of Johnny Depp.

"But while I'm alive, I will be fighting for the one thing the new generation is not aware of - the capacity of hypnosis of a large screen for a viewer".

Netflix allows Smith's children to "watch films they otherwise wouldn't have seen". "The Cannes Film Festival is the ultimate prestige in cinema". Netflix brings a great connectivity for them to the world.

Smith couldn't resist the last word: "I was probably 14 years old the last time I watched three movies in one day".

Ten months after a truck attack in nearby Nice killed 86 people, concrete barriers - in the form of giant flower pots - have been set up to try to block any similar assault.

With his shock of grey hair and bright red sunglasses, Pedro Almodovar cut quite the distinctive figure as he led his jury members into their first official press conference.
