As expected, the Cannes Film Festival line-up is pretty spectacular with new films from Yorgos Lanthimos, Andrea Arnold and David Cronenberg heading to the fest. 

As the days are getting longer and there’s a tiny bit more sunshine in between the showers of rain, that can only mean one thing. The Cannes Film Festival is almost upon us. 

Of course, us peasants rarely get to go, but it is fun to read the reactions from the glitzy world premieres as the stars gather in the picturesque town of Cannes.

And this year’s festival line-up is a doozy. We already knew George Miller was heading to the Croisette with Furiosa, Francis Ford Coppola is bringing Megalopolis and Kevin Costner will be premiering his new film, too, but there’s a whole heap of great filmmakers heading out to the beach with their films. 

The highlights include Yorgos Lanthimos’ Kinds Of Kindness, which recently debuted its first trailer. David Cronenberg is bringing The Shrouds to the festival while Andrea Arnold will premiere her film Bird in the competition line-up. 

For genre enthusiasts, Revenge director Coralie Fargeat is in competition with her new film The Substance. There will also be new films from Ali Abbasi, Paul Schrader and Sean Baker among others.
