Cannes Film Festival 2019 Lineup Revealed

The line of the 2019 Cannes Film Festival is here. 

Following the news that the festival’s poster will pay homage to French cinema icon Agnès Varda, it seems that this year’s festival is taking another step towards recognizing women in the industry. This year’s official selection includes four female in competition and 13 in the selection overall. 

The 47 film-long lineup includes obvious selections such as Pedro Almodóvar (Pain & Glory), Terrence Malick (A Hidden Life) and Ken Loach (Sorry We Missed You). But it also includes major no-shows, particularly Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which is currently in editing.

Cannes Film Festival’s artistic director Thierry Frémaux and Cannes president Pierre Lescure unveiled the festival’s lineup Thursday morning from the UGC Normandie theater on Paris’ Champs-Elysées.
