Cannes Interest List 2017

by Col Needham | last updated - 1 month ago

These are the films which I am most excited about seeing at The Cannes Film Festival 2017. After the opening night film, the list is in alphabetical order by English title. I always try to catch all the films in the main competition.

Cannes is a wonderful festival with so many films to see and so many things happening. I will not make it to all of these but I will certainly try to catch as many as possible!

The ones I see will be moved to my Cannes Film Festival 2017 list.
