Cannes unveils all titles in Official selection

2020-06-03 00:00:00

56 titles in the Official selection of Cannes Film Festival have been unveiled on a press conference without the presence of journalists due to the coronavirus pandemic. Delegate general Thierry Frémaux said the expectation was that Cannes 2020 label films would premiere at festivals that can go ahead in autumn and early 2021 with “the active support of Cannes and its teams”, and confirmed they will be accepted in the competition sections at San Sebastian and Toronto. It is believed that Venice has decided to not accept films selected for the Cannes 2020 label.

The 56-strong line-up includes Wes Anderson’s French Dispatch; two Steve McQueen projects - Mangrove and Lovers Rock; Maïwenn’s DNA; Naomi Kawase’s True Mothers; Thomas Vinterberg’s Another Round and Yeon Sang-ho’s Train To Busan follow-up Peninsula.

The titles are not divided up into the usual categories of Competition, Un Certain Regard, Out of Competition, Midnight Screenings or Special Screenings. It includes 15 first films, a higher percentage of female-directed titles and a strong French presence.
