Cannes is unique amongst A-list film festivals in that it’s an event largely reserved for film industry professionals and the press. Accreditation, screenings, and entry to official venues is tightly controlled, with the vast majority of the festival off-limits to the general public.
The premiere will be among the most A-list heavy, as the film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, Jesse Plemons, and Brendan Fraser, along with newcomer Lily Gladstone. As previously announced, the festival will open with Maiwenn’s period drama “Jeanne du Barry” starring Johnny Depp.
Thierry Frémaux and Iris Knobloch announced the list of selected films for this 76th edition of the Cannes Festival. A selection that wants to be the most heterogeneous on the genre cinema.
