  Shrek 2 in running for top honour
Updated 21 April 2004, 14.50
Scene from Shrek I
Shrek 2 is in the running for one of the top honours in the movie business.

The animated comedy is among 18 films competing for the prestigious Palme d'Or prize at the famous Cannes Festival in the French Riviera.

It's up against documentaries, arty films and big-budget movies. It follows in the footsteps of the first Shrek film, which was also a Cannes nominee.

"The festival has been spreading the word that it's open to all types of films," said the organiser.
