2021 Cannes Film Festival Lineup Includes Wes Anderson, Sean Baker, Mia Hansen-Love, and More


After a long year without movie theaters, the Cannes Film Festival is back in full swing with a lineup that includes great names such as Wes Anderson, Sean Baker, Mia Hansen-Love, Leos Carax, and much, much more. The full 2021 lineup was unveiled today in a press conference with Pierre Lescure, president of the Festival de Cannes, and Thierry Frémaux, general delegate of the event.

The 2021 edition of the Cannes Film Festival will feature long-awaited movies initially promised for the 2020 edition before the event was canceled due to the pandemic. Carax’s new film Annette will open the festival, while Anderson’s The French Dispatch and Paul Verhoeven’s Benedetta will finally be exhibited for the first time.

Even if movie theaters in France are still operating with reduced capacity, all the screenings of the Cannes Film Festival will have permission to operate at 100 percent capacity. As with commercial screenings in France, all moviegoers will be required to wear face masks during the entire time. Cannes, however, will have an extra cautionary measure, as spectators will need to present a vaccination certificate or a negative PCR test taken 48 hours before the screening.

The 2021 Cannes Film Festival begins July 6 and runs through July 17. Check the official announcement of the 2021 Cannes Official Selection below, or jump straight to our full list of films and filmmakers.
