Xavier Dolan just can't stay away from the Cannes Film Festival. Last year's Special Jury prize winner for "Mommy" thought he should have won the Palm d'Or and now he'll be part of the jury deciding that prestigious honor. Oh, my. The Cannes Film Festival announced the Jury today which also includes Guillermo Del Toro, Jake Gyllenhaal Sienna Miller, Rossy de Palma, Sophie Marceau, Rokia Traore and Jury presidents Joel and Ethan Coen. That's quite a Hollywood contingent for Cannes most important clique. Almost always political and rarely unanimous, the Cannes Jury was led by Jane Campion in 2014. That group selected "Winter Sleep" as their Palm d'Or winner while many believed "Leviathan" or "Foxcatcher" deserved the honor. The Festival also announced its Director's Fortnight selections this morning. This is the section of the festival where "Blue Ruin" made its debut over the past few years.

Monday we shared the lineup for the Cannes 2015 Critics Week, and now the complete lineup for the festival has been revealed with the addition of the Director’s Fortnight. 17 films in all will be screened over the two weeks, including a balanced mix of ones from established veterans and newcomers, as well as World Premieres and other festival darlings.
On opening night May 14, Philippe Garrel’s (Jealousy) In the Shadow of Women will make its World Premiere with a story about two romantically intwined documentary filmmakers experiencing a moment of betrayal. Director’s Fortnight will close with the Sundance hit Dope, which you can watch the trailer for here.
Also on the list is the much anticipated follow up to Blue Ruin, Jeremy Saulnier’s Green Room, starring Patrick Stewart. It’s one of three American films among the lineup. And as a special screening, Cannes attendees will get an »

It's weeks now until the Cannes Film Festival, and just this morning our team received confirmation of their press accreditation. So yes, excitement is building. And not just for the big shiny show on the Croisette. Today, the Directors' Fortnight revealed their slate, and it certainly holds some promising pictures. In addition to previously announced entries like Arnaud Desplechin's "The Golden Years," Phillipe Garrel's "In The Shadow Of Women," and Miguel Gomes' six-hour epic "Arabian Nights," the line up has added "Blue Ruin" director Jeremy Saulnier's "Green Room." You might remember that one as the movie in which Patrick Stewart will play a Neo-Nazi leader who leads a gang of white power skinheads against a punk rock band. Um, yeah, we really want to see to that. Meanwhile, Takashi Miike has cranked out another movie, and his "Yakuza Apocalypse: The Great War Of The Underworld" will get a special screening. »

While some may have expected Cannes faves Jaco Van Dormael and Takashi Miike to wind up in the Official Selection, those auteurs instead lead the 47th Directors' Fortnight lineup, along with American indies “Green Room,” starring Imogen Poots, Anton Yelchin and Patrick Stewart, the world premiere of Jeremy Saulnier's punk rock follow-up to Fortnight entry "Blue Ruin,' and two Sundance titles, Chloe Zhao’s Native American drama “Songs My Brothers Taught Me" and the May 24 Fortnight closer, Rick Famuyiwa's L.A. comedy “Dope." After leaking that Competition two also-rans would play in the Quinzaine rather than accept slots in Un Certain Regard--Miguel Gomes's three part, six-hour portrait of contemporary Portugal, “Arabian Nights” (The Match Factory) and French Arnaud Desplechin's “My Golden Years" starring Mathieu Amalric-- on Tuesday artistic director Edouard Waintrop laid out the full lineup of 19 »

Takashi Miike (Yakuza Apocalypse: The Great War Of The Underworld), Fernando León de Aranoa (A Perfect Day starring Benicio del Toro, Tim Robbins, and Olga Kurylenko) and Jaco Van Dormael (a top item on our most anticipated foreign films list, The Brand New Testament stars Catherine Deneuve, Benoît Poelvoorde, Yolande Moreau) are some of the veterans filmmakers joining the previously mentioned Philippe Garrel, Miguel Gomes and Arnaud Desplechin as part the 47th edition of the Directors’ Fortnight. Edouard Waintrop’s programming team happen to be the only ones to have selected Sundance Film Festival items this year with Rick Famuyiwa‘s Dope being selected as the closing night film and Chloé Zhao‘s Songs My Brothers Taught Me finds some love as well. Fellow American filmmaker Jeremy Saulnier also joins them — after having launched Blue Ruin in the section a couple of editions back, he now returns with Green Room. »

It has already been announced that the opening film will be In the Shadow of Women, by Directors’ Fortnight habitué Philippe Garrel. The film revolves around a documentary-maker who drops his mistress, a trainee he met on a shoot, after he discovers his long-term partner also has a lover.
It has also been revealed that Arnaud Desplechin’s My Golden Days (Trois souvenirs de ma jeunesse) would also premiere there, as will Portuguese filmmaker Miguel Gomes’ Arabian Nights, a contemporary re-telling of One Thousand and One Nights.

Last week, the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs announced that "Philippe Garrel, who attended the 1st edition of the Directors' Fortnight with The Virgin's Bed in 1969, will celebrate the opening of the 47th edition with his new film, In the Shadow of Women." Then, over the weekend, we learned of two more additions: Arnaud Desplechin's My Golden Days and Miguel Gomes's Arabian Nights. Today, we have the full lineup, which includes films by Peter Tscherkassky, Takashi Miike, Fernando León de Aranoa, Rick Famuyiwa, Jeremy Saulnier, Chloé Zhao and more. » - David Hudson »
New works by Jaco Van Dormael, Takashi Miike, Jeremy Saulnier and Sarunas Bartas, as well as recent Sundance entries “Dope” and “Songs My Brothers Taught Me,” are among the films set to screen in the 47th annual Directors’ Fortnight program at the Cannes Film Festival.
As announced by artistic director Edouard Waintrop at a press conference on Tuesday, the Fortnight will unspool 19 features this year — three of them directed by Portuguese helmer Miguel Gomes, whose six-hour-plus trilogy, “Arabian Nights,” was announced by the Fortnight last week, as was “My Golden Years,” the latest from French auteur Arnaud Desplechin. Both Gomes and Desplechin were turned down from the main competition and opted to take their films to the other side of the Croisette rather than accept slots in Un Certain Regard — a major coup for Waintrop that signals one of the most openly competitive years for the official selection and Directors’ Fortnight in recent memory. »

After teasing first titles for the past week, the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, run by the French Director’s Guild, on Tuesday unveiled its complete lineup. Among the films set for the 47th edition of the independent sidebar that takes place during the Cannes Film Festival is American Jeremy Saulnier’s Green Room, the follow-up to his Kickstarter-funded thriller Blue Ruin, which ran in the sidebar in 2013 and went on to win the Fipresci Prize. As previously announced, legendary French director Philippe Garrel’s latest film, The Virgin’s Bed, will open the sidebar. The sidebar also previously announced Miguel Gomes’ Arabian Nights

The spring is always a bit of a head-spinning time to be a cinephile. In addition to the onslaught of big money blockbusters, the arthouse world rolls out its finest at the Cannes Film Festival and sidebar lineups. And this week kicks off with big news about the lineups in those sister festivals. For those who thought that "Tabu" director Miguel Gomes' epic "Arabian Nights" would be headed to the main show, guess again. THR reveals that the six-hour movie will instead screen at the Cannes Directors' Fortnight. “The breath-taking triptych is inspired by the tales told by Scheherazade and by some events that occurred in Portugal between 2013 and 2014, while the country was subjected to a political power denying all forms of social justice,” the festival's Artistic Director Edouard Waintrop said. Meanwhile, Cannes Critics' Week has unveiled their slate, and the starriest attraction is Elie Wajeman’s “The Anarchists, »

While awaiting the full programme launch tomorrow (21 April), the Directors’ Fortnight has unveiled two more titles for the Cannes line-up in addition to the already revealed L’Ombre Des Femmes by Philippe Garrel.
Originally touted for the official selection, Arnaud Desplechin will make it to the Croisette after all with My Golden Years (Trois Souvenirs De Ma Jeuness). His absence from Thierry Fremaux’s line-up caused some concern, especially as those who have seen it say it is the director’s “best and most moving film.” An exploration of time and lost loves, the production boasts a cast including Desplechin regular Mathieu Amalric alongside newcomers Quentin Domaire and Lou Roy-Recollinet.

Weerasethakul, Davies and Van Dormael also rumoured to be headed to parallel section.
Portuguese filmmaker Miguel Gomes’ Arabian Nights, a contemporary re-telling of One Thousand and One Nights, is set to premiere in Directors’ Fortnight, a parallel section of the Cannes Film Festival (May 13-24).
“Arabian Nights, the film - or, even better, the three miraculous films - by Miguel Gomes, will be premiering at the Directors’ Fortnight,” said Directors’ Fortnight artistic director Edouard Waintrop.
“The breathtaking triptych is inspired by the tales told by Scheherazade and by some events that occurred in Portugal between 2013 and 2014, while the country was subjected to a political power denying all forms of social justice. It will set the pace of our program. Each film, directed with a wild fantasy and a great freedom, will have its day.”
Set against the background of the economic crisis in Portugal, a contemporary Scheherazade paints a picture of the country’s woes, across three episodes: »
“Arabian Nights,” a three-part, six-hour-plus drama from the Portuguese director Miguel Gomes (“Tabu”), will make its world premiere in the Directors’ Fortnight section of the Cannes Film Festival, the Fortnight has announced.
Likely to clock in as the longest entry at Cannes this year, the film was apparently highly regarded by the official selection committee and had been heavily considered for competition. But organizers balked at the lengthy running time, which would have effectively taken up two competition slots, and offered the film an Un Certain Regard berth. Gomes opted to take the film to Directors’ Fortnight instead.
Gomes isn’t the only high-profile auteur to ditch the official selection for the Directors’ Fortnight, which earlier this week announced that it would present the world premiere of Arnaud Desplechin’s “My Golden Years” (which had also been turned down from competition). The program will open with Philippe Garrel’s “In the Shadow of Women. »

Star-studded English-language dramas from Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, Denis Villeneuve, Justin Kurzel, Paolo Sorrentino and Matteo Garrone will vie for the Palme d’Or alongside new films by Valerie Donzelli, Jacques Audiard, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Jia Zhangke at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup on Thursday.
While there are only two U.S. directors in competition — Haynes with “Carol,” a 1950s lesbian love story starring Cate Blanchett, and Van Sant with his suicide drama “The Sea of Trees,” pairing Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe — this year’s Palme race looks to feature more high-profile Hollywood talent than any in recent memory. Canada’s Villeneuve (“Prisoners,” “Enemy”) will bring his Mexican drug-cartel drama “Sicario,” with Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin, while Australia’s Kurzel (“The Snowtown Murders”) secured a Palme berth for “Macbeth,” his Shakespeare adaptation toplining Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).
In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.
With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.
Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.
For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »
