Scorsese busy at Cannes

From Cinematical I see that seasoned director, Martin Scorsese, will be a very busy man at the 60th Cannes Film Festival this year.

Not only will he be the festival's guest of honour, who will present a Masterclass to young filmmakers, and hand out the Caméra d'Or in the best director category, he's also teaming up with other directors to launch a new project: the World Cinema Foundation, which will be "devoted to the preservation and restoration of cinematic masterpieces from across the globe."

Based on the preliminary programme that's shaping up, as reported by Variety, it looks like this year's festival is going to be a lively event.
