2013 Cannes Film Festival Lineup Announced

Inside Llewyn Davis Inside Llewyn Davis

Yesterday, a relatively convincing hoax lineup was “leaked” to a few websites, which presented a tantalizing vision of what Cannes 2013 had to offer. This morning, however, the real slate has been unveiled and its actually even more stacked with big name directors and exciting films.

In competition, there are the new titles from U.S. directors Steven Soderbergh (his HBO “non-film” on Liberace), Alexander Payne, James Gray and the Coen brothers, with Europe represented by films from auteurs such as Paolo Sorrentino, François Ozon, Arnaud Desplechin, Abdellatif Kechiche (The Secret of the Grain), Nicolas Winding Refn, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi and Roman Polanski. From further afield, there are also new works from Hirokazu Kore-eda, Asghar Farhadi (A Separation), Takashi Miike and Jia Zhangke.

In Un Certain Regard, Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring opens proceedings, while films from James Franco, Claire Denis, 2012 “25 New Face” and double Sundance winner Ryan Coogler and Filipino director Lav Diaz also stand out. Additionally, Margin Call director J.C. Chandor’s sophomore feature, All Is Lost, screens out of competition.

This lineup certainly promises a lot — these are films from directors with excellent track records — however it will be interesting to see whether this slate lives up to what will be very high expectations.
