This morning, The line-up for one of the most prestigious films festivals in the festival calendar, Cannes, was revealed by Festival president Pierre Lescure and general delegate Thierry Fremaux.

Notable omissions from the 2000 strong submissions, is the lack of British offerings from the line-up and only a token amount of US projects. The Cannes snobbery has gone into overdrive for 2018 with a number of shakes up, including the banning non-French theatrical releases from the main competition. This means that Netflix has refused to submit any of its films even though they were eligible to submit to the out of competition category.

The line-up includes the new films from directors such as Jean-Luc Godard, Spike Lee, Wim Wenders, Ron Howard’s Solo: A Star Wars story – which features in the out of competition category – Pawel Pawlikowski, Jafar Panahi, Lee Chang-Dong, David Robert Mitchell, Matteo Garrone and Asghar Farhadi. The full list is below.
