Further insight into the 2020 Official Festival de Cannes Selection  

The Festival de Cannes revealed its 2020 Official Selection on 3 June. We are delighted to showcase the films that the Selection Committee loved and selected.

This year’s Selection marks a shift away from the Festival de Cannes’ traditional structure, and is divided into six categories:

– The “faithful”, directors who have been included in an Official Selection before,

– The newcomers, included in the Official Selection for their very first time,

-The first features, in an extension of the Festival de Cannes’ trademark passion for unearthing new talent. 

– Three documentary films, a genre that has been represented in Official Selection for two decades now,

– Five comedy films, a genre that remains under-represented at Cannes

– Four animated films: from France, Japan, Denmark and the United States.

The short notes were written by the members of the Selection Committee.
