Cannes 2014 Lineup Announced

The anticipation was killing us all week but finally it’s here, the official lineup for the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. Grace Of Monaco (which stars Nicole Kidman) had previously been announced as the opening film of the festival. At first glance, the most notable films that were announced today are The Search from Michel Hazavanicus, his follow-up to The Artist, David Cronenberg’s Maps To The Stars, Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher, Ryan Golsing’s directorial debut Lost River, Xavier Dolan’s Mommy, and Jean-Luc Godard’s Goodbye To Language. More anticipation will build as more information gets released on the rest of the films.

Those paying attention to the rumors may be disappointed to see P.T. Anderson’s Inherent Vice didn’t make the lineup. Also absent on the list was Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups (which was also mentioned as a rumor for last year’s festival). Still the lineup is a very impressive start. There will be one or two more out-of-competition films, Critics’ Week lineup, and Directors’ Fortnight lineup announcements coming next week.

This year Nik Grozdanovic will be representing Way Too Indie at Cannes, providing daily reports from the festival. So stay tuned for our coverage!
