Cannes Film Festival Reveals 2023 Lineup (Updated Live) – WhatsNew2Day


The Cannes Film Festival, the world’s most prestigious cinema event, unveils the official line-up for its 76th edition.

New Cannes festival president Iris Knobloch and longtime artistic director Thierry Frémaux present the competition, Un Certain Regard and out-of-competition titles for the 2023 edition of Cannes at a press conference in Paris. You can follow the event live below.

Cannes has already announced two major Hollywood productions that will premiere on the Croisette: James Mangold’s Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate, the fifth entry in the archaeologist adventure franchise starring Harrison Ford; and that of Martin Scorsese Killers of the flower moon, an Apple Originals drama starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Lily Gladstone and Robert De Niro.

Cannes regular Pedro Almodóvar also returns to the festival’s red carpet for the world premiere of his LGBTQ Western Strange way of lifean English-language short film starring Ethan Hawke and Pedro Pascal.

Joan of Barrya French drama directed by and starring Polish And DNA director Mäiwenn, will open the 2023 festival on May 16. Mäiwenn plays Jeanne Vaubernier, a working-class woman who became the last official courtesan of France’s King Louis XV, played by Johnny Depp.

The selection is sure to raise a few eyebrows, given Depp’s recent, very public, legal spat with ex-wife Amber Heard. Mäiwenn is also in the spotlight, after the release of a police report that she is being charged with assault by a French journalist. Edwy Plenel, the editor-in-chief of the online investigative newspaper Mediapart, claims he was eating at a restaurant in Paris when the director attacked him, violently grabbing his hair and spitting in his face.

Two-time Cannes Palme d’Or winner Ruben Östlund (The square, Triangle of sadness) will lead the jury of this year’s Cannes competition. The 2023 Cannes Film Festival will run from May 16 to 27.
