Programming Cannes Film Festival 2021 – Complete list – Deadline

Refresh to last…: One year after unveiling the program for what would have been the 73rd Cannes Film Festival, the president of the organization Pierre Lescure and the general delegate Thierry Frémaux are back on stage at the UGC Normandie cinema in Paris this morning to unveil the official selection of the 74th edition. (Scroll down for the full list as we update live.)

After a series of Covid-induced departures and stops, the festival is moving forward this year, albeit at later dates than usual – July 6-17. Spike Lee serves as jury chairman, reviving last year’s kiboshed event.

Among the titles already confirmed this morning are the opening night film Annette by director Leos Carax and starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard, as well as the Searchlight ensemble by Wes Anderson The French dispatch and that of Paul Verhoeven Benedetta. Each of the three films will be presented in competition.

Jodie Foster will receive an honorary Palme d’Or this year, attending as a special guest at the opening ceremony on July 6 to collect her award. There are other household names that should make the Riviera’s list, so stay tuned.

And, for those planning to attend the festival, Cannes on Wednesday issued guidelines saying admission will be subject to daily passport health checks. This is defined as a certificate demonstrating complete vaccination of a vaccine recognized by the European Medicines Agency (e.g. proof that 14 days have passed since the second injection for people vaccinated with double-dose vaccines, or proof that four weeks have passed since a single dose vaccine); OR a negative PCR or antigen test result issued no more than 48 hours before – to be renewed every 48 hours for the duration of the festival; OR evidence of immunity via a positive antibody test or RT-PCR test dated at least 15 days and less than six months. The festival’s partner laboratory center near the Palais will provide the tests free of charge.
