Programming of the Cannes Film Festival 2022 – Complete list – Deadline

UPDATE: The lineup for the 75th Cannes Film Festival – as it stands, there are still some additions to be made – has been revealed with 18 films in competition (see full lists below). Included in the race are Palme d’Or winners such as Hirokazu Kore-eda, Cristian Mungiu, Ruben Ostlund and the Dardenne brothers.

James Gray, Claire Denis, Park Chan-wook, Kelly Reichardt, Jerzy Skolimowski and, as expected, David Cronenberg are other household names who will launch new works in the Competition.

In the rest of the official selection, George Miller’s Three thousand years of nostalgia has been confirmed for an Out of Competition spot while Ethan Coen is appearing in the Special Sessions with Jerry Lee Lewis: Trouble In Mind.

A total of 49 films were announced today, including that of Michel Hazanavicius Z (Like Z) a.k.a final cut, which will open the festival on May 17 out of competition. The comedy Zombie stars Bérénice Bejo and Romain Duris.

See below for the full list announced today and we’ll be back with more in-depth review and analysis.

PREVIOUS: After being rocked by the pandemic for the past two years – and just in time for its 75th anniversary – the Cannes Film Festival is finally returning to its usual May slot. Thus, the President Pierre Lescure and the General Delegate Thierry Frémaux announce this morning the programming of the event from the UGC Normandie cinema in Paris on the Champs-Elysées. (Scroll down for the full list as we update live.)

You can also watch the livestream here.

Among the star-studded titles already confirmed for a red carpet walk are Paramount/Skydance’s Tom Cruise sequel Top Gun: Maverick (with Cruise being specially celebrated by the festival) and Warner Bros/Roadshow’s Elvisthe Elvis Presley biopic by Baz Luhrmann which stars Austin Butler and Tom Hanks.

In a twist, there’s still no word on a jury president, and we don’t yet know what opens the proceedings on May 17 (the festival runs until May 28).

Films widely tipped to be launched from the Croisette include Three thousand years of nostalgia by director George Miller and starring Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton; and David Cronenberg Future Crimes, with Léa Seydoux, Kristen Stewart and Viggo Mortensen. The two filmmakers would make their return to Cannes.

As we revealed earlier this week, one movie that won’t be there, but was also supposed to be part of the Official Selection, is Disney/Pixar. Light year. Likewise, David Lynch has dismissed suggestions that he has a new movie on the Riviera.

Check back below for the lineup which is updated as movies are announced:
