Most stars dream of representing their latest film at the Cannes Film Festival and most film fans dream of watching them walk down the red carpet. Cannes is the biggest, flashiest and most decadent festival on the circuit, the place to be and be seen. If you're lucky enough to find yourself at Cannes this year, here's our list of where to stay, where to eat and what to see.
Being rich and famous doesn't exempt a person from the indignities of travel. Nor does being an international treasure hunter, apparently: Harrison Ford's red-carpet premiere for "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" at the Cannes Film Festival was ruined when someone made off with his digital camera.
Last seen in Ford's pocket, the camera has not yet been recovered and is the only medium in history to prove that, when she turns sideways, the actor's wife Calista Flockhart actually does disappear.
Maybe Shia LaBeouf's sidekick Mutt grabbed it to make his mentor a nice scrapbook!

Woody Allen's new movie "Vicky Cristina Barcelona," shot in Spain last year, got the red-carpet treatment at the Cannes Film Festival over the weekend, with star Penelope Cruz braving the flashbulbs.
But where was American beauty (and recent Allen muse) Scarlett Johansson? Rumor has it the recently engaged actress's demands caused the studio to reject her travel arrangements including an expensive make-up assistant and a posh suite at a particular hotel.
To play devil's advocate, maybe Johansson wanted to spend the week with her new fiance Ryan Reynolds. But why not take him to southern France? We hear it's very romantic! Even without her, though, the movie reportedly got a ten-minute standing ovation at a public screening.

Sometimes, you really only need one carry-on--or someone in the background to carry your other luggage. Cate Blanchett arrived at Heathrow earlier this week to travel to the Cannes Film Festival with her one-month old son Ignatius in a baby harness.
With her all-black ensemble, Cate has nothing to fear should her wee baby need burping. Just wipe it off! She later donned a not-so-spill-resistant Armani Prive gown for the Cannes premiere of "Blindness." Her movie "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" screened at the fest on May 18.
When most of us think of Labor Day weekend, we make tracks toward the beach, the woods or--if you're not going anywhere--the sales at the mall. But why not the balmy shores of Venice? If the Cannes Film Festival is the movie world's Memorial Day, then the Venice International Film Festival, home of the Golden Lion award, is summer's last hurrah. You won't get a tan in all those screenings, but at least you get to see the stars!
Cannes' festival may be better known for its prestige and glamour, but Venice's is actually the oldest in the world, founded way back in 1932. Because they're closer to our traditional Oscar season, they often pick up prestige films that aren't ready in time for Cannes--like Keira Knightley's latest, "Atonement," a tragic romance set between the World Wars in England.
Most working actors would kill to hear their new film would have a premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. Not Pamela Anderson! The "Stacked" and "Borat" actress told People magazine she'd be having her own premiere "in my bed with popcorn," open only to her two sons. Instead, Denise Richards will be representing the stars of "Blonde and Blonder," written by Anderson's brother Gerry, at the festival.
Hey now, just because your ex didn't buy you an island after all, there's no need to stay at home and mope. Air France still has $1100 tickets to Nice (the closest commercial airport to Cannes), if you can leave before Sunday.
Parts of the movie were shot at the River Rock Casino Resort in Vancouver, where Richards tossed some paparazzi's laptops over a balcony. She was mad because no one bought her a private island, either.
Longtime Jaunted readers know we have a little bit of a Borat obsession over here. The man sets travel trends at a torrid pace. Yesterday, on a beach in Cannes, he did it again, debuting what looks like some type of banana slingshot bathing suite, or maybe it is an upside down Star Trek symbol suite. Actually, come to think of it, it looks like one of those sterogram posters where if you relax your eyes and stare at it long enough, you fall into a trance and see hidden pink dolphins jumping out of the water. On second thought, if you are able to relax your eyes while staring at Borat in the above photo, seek professional help immediately.
