The Cannes Film Festival 2021 Lineup

The Cannes Film Festival has announced its line-up for its 2021 incarnation. President Pierre Lescure and General Delegate Thierry Frémaux announced the 61 titles for the festival, which will run from July 6-17 2021.

Spike Lee is president of the jury – a role he was supposed to take on last year before the event was cancelled due to COVID-19. The festival’s opening film is Leos Carax’s Annette starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard. Wes Anderson’s film The French Dispatch starring Timothee Chalamet and Paul Verhoeven’s Benedetta, were also in the competition and Jodie Foster will receive an honorary Palme d’Or. Tom McCarthy’s Stillwater starring Matt Damon will screen out of competition.
