Friday fest frenzy

Parties are plenty at Cannes

Cannes revelry hit a crescendo on Friday night with more than a dozen fetes.

As Variety editor-in-chief Peter Bart signed copies of his “Boffo!” book at a pre-screening soiree for HBO docu collaboration at the Majestic, Harvey Weinstein gave autographs at his own reception at the Martinez down the way.

Paramount Vantage held its coming-out party at chic beach retreat La Plage. A steady breeze kept minglers cool despite the heat generated by the hosts and guests.

Royalty hit Cannes, with Thailand’s Princess Ubolratana Rajakanya gracing Carlton-based Nikki Club to announce the dates of the 2007 Bangkok Intl. Film Fest.

Pedro Almodovar‘s uncharacteristically sedate “Volver” bash drew a raft of revelers, but party ended at 1 a.m. when the power suddenly shut down.

But for those who weren’t partied out, the Russians were still throwing back Stoli at the Majestic Beach
