    CANNES Festival 2019


    The Cannes Film Festival 14-25 May 2019

    You'll find a quick survey of the Cannes 2019 Competition list by Peter Bradshaw today in the GUARDIAN.

    2019 Cannes Film Festival Lineup: Terrence Malick, Xavier Dolan, Almodóvar Compete for Palme d’Or
    Cannes is celebrating its 72nd year in 2019 beginning May 14.

    The 2019 Cannes Film Festival has announced the majority of its official lineup, including films set to debut in sections such as Competition, Un Certain Regard, Out of Competition, Special Screenings, and Midnight Screenings. The lineup was announced this morning during a press conference. One thing to note is that additions to the lineup will most likely happen in the coming days. The lineup being announced this morning is the majority of the 2019 slate.

    One film already confirmed for the festival is Jim Jarmusch’s “The Dead Don’t Die,” which has been selected to open Cannes 2019 on May 14. The movie is a zombie comedy starring Adam Driver, Bill Murray, and Chloe Sevigny as police officers who must protect their small town from the undead. “The Dead Don’t Die” will be in competition at Cannes, bringing Jarmusch back to the Palme d’Or race after “Paterson” in 2016. Other Jarmusch efforts that have competed for the Palme at Cannes include “Only Lovers Left Alive,” “Broken Flowers” (winner of the Grand Jury Prize), “Dead Man,” and “Mystery Train.” Jarmusch’s short film “Coffee and Cigarettes” won the Best Short Film prize at Cannes in 1993.

    Potential Oscar Contenders of Cannes 2019 (somebody thinks) Include 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' and Isabelle Huppert. Isabelle Huppert Says Her Performance in Cannes-Bound 'Frankie' is something completely new for her.

    This year it appears that both Netflix and Amazon film releases are excluded, logically since these "giants" have not changed their policy toward French cinema release.

    This year’s Cannes COMPETITION JURY will be led by “Birdman” and “The Revenant” Oscar winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu. The filmmaker won the Best Director prize at Cannes for “Babel” in 2006 and returned to the competition lineup in 2010 with the drama “Biutiful,” which won star Javier Bardem the Best Actor prize. The rest of Iñárritu’s jury will be announced later.

    The late Agnès Varda is featured in the official poster. There are still only four women directors included in the Competition list (though as Deadline points out in its tidy review, that is "the most of any recent year"). The lucky ladies are Mati Diop, Jessica Hausner, Céline Sciamma and Justine Triet. The second two are French.
