Cannes 2016: Ken Loach's 'I, Daniel Blake' wins Palme d'Or; Xavier Dolan takes Grand Prix

Amid the usual excitement and unusually heightened security, the 69th Cannes Film Festival kicked off Wednesday with the world premiere of Woody Allen's "Café Society," starring Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart and Steve Carell.

  • Questions about Dylan Farrow's allegations of sexual abuse went glaringly unasked at the press conference, Steven Zeitchik reports.

  • An apocalyptic mood hangs heavily over the proceedings, Kenneth Turan writes.

  • "Aquarius," "The BFG," "Risk" and "The Red Turtle" are among the 11 Cannes films Justin Chang can't wait to see.
