Cannes Announces 2015 Competition Lineup

Mad Max: Fury Road

Below you’ll find the as-of-now lineup for the Cannes Film Festival, which takes this play this year from May 13 to 24. A few notes: there will be more titles added to competition soon (fingers crossed for the new Apichatpong Weerasethakul), and this isn’t the full extent of the festival. Next week will see the announcement of the Directors’ Fortnight and Critics’ Week sections, and there are other less prominent parts of the festival (such as the ACID sidebar) that also have yet to be unveiled. A special shout-out to Roberto Minervini, whose excellent Stop the Pounding Heart debuted at Cannes two years ago and the subject of a feature interview in our Summer issue from last year. Finally, as always, for more turn to the invaluable David Hudson, who as ever has assembled a staggeringly thorough compilation of information about the films in record time.
