Cannes Announce 2020 Lineup

Cannes Film Festival has announced its 2020 Official Selections which includes Pixar‘s Soul and Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch. 56 movies were chosen and will receive a Cannes 2020 label.

The lineup also includes two Steve McQueen selections Lovers Rock and Mangrove. Along with Francois Ozon’s anticipated Summer 85 and many emerging directors.

Cannes’ artistic director Thierry Fremaux and president Pierre Lescure announced the roster on Canal Plus, instead of the traditional press conference due to the current global pandemic.

The categories consist of “the faithful” for directors who have been an Official Selection before, newcomers, first features, comedies, documentaries, and animated features. The usual categories Competition, Un Certain Regard and Out of Competition won’t be used this year.

Due to COVID-19, there will be no physical festival but selected movies will get a world premiere in partnership with other festivals including Toronto and San Sebastian.
