The full list of the official selection for the 71st Cannes Film Festival was presented by the chief of Cannes Film Festival, Thierry Fremaux, in Paris this morning.
Here it is: the full list of all the nominees for the 71st Cannes Film Festival which will be held in France early next month. And in case you are worried, the list DOES NOT contain any major bombshells, though, with some spots still up for grabs, you could expect some in the coming days.
Thierry Fremaux, the chief of Cannes Film Festival, followed the long-held tradition of the annual film festival as he presented the full list of official selection earlier today.
One film which was highly anticipated but went missing was ‘’The House that Jack Built’’. Starring Lars Von Trier, this movie has mesmerized the cinemagoers with some brilliant performances.
To his credit, Fremaux tried to calm the nerves of the fan of this film by hinting that the film could become a part of the festival’s official lineup in the coming few days.
Looking at the U.S. filmmakers whose names were mentioned by Thierry, Spike Lee would be looking to make his mark with Blackkklansman. David Robert is back, and as you might expect, he will be competing with ‘’Under the Silver Lake’’.
Other names that the audience might know include that of Jean-Luc Godard whose film ‘’Livre D’Image’’ would be gracing the Cannes Film Festival. Pawel Pawlikowski would like to impress the audience with his ‘’Cold War’’, whereas Kore-Eda Hirokazu would be going with the ‘’Shoplifters’’.
Also notable are the two filmmakers who have been targeted by authorities in their respective home countries. They include Kirill Serebrennikov from Russia and Jafar Panahi from Iran. Both these names were also mentioned by Thierry in the main lineup.
