Celebrities have descended on Cannes for most glamorous event in the film calendar.

The 71st Cannes Film Festival kicked off on Tuesday with Cate Blanchett as President of the Jury.

As the who’s who of the movie industry arrived into the French city, the impact of #MeToo is still being felt.

The movement against sexual harassment, which has already claimed scalps in Hollywood, has prompted organisers to set up a hotline to help people report incidents.

It has been received “several calls a day” since its launch, a representative for the festival said.
