    Cannes Film Festival Reveals 2020 Lineup: Wes Anderson, Steve McQueen, Kate Winslet & Pixar

    Deadline - Thursday, June 4th, 12:08 am




    UPDATED WITH LINEUP: The Cannes Film Festival has revealed its 2020 lineup, which includes new movies from Wes Anderson, Steve McQueen, Pixar, Francois Ozon, Naomi Kawase, Thomas Vinterberg and Maiwenn. Scroll down for lineup.

    Despite its cancellation due to the coronavirus, Cannes has revealed the 56 movies chosen for its Official Selection as a badge of honor for the movies and in a bid to boost their distribution credentials. Details about the makeup of the lineup, including a record number of women directors and debuts, were revealed yesterday.

    The festival didn’t differentiate movies by section this year, instead announcing all 56 movies in one list, only demarcating some by thematic category.

    Artistic director Thierry Frémaux had previously said that Spike Lee’s Netflix film Da 5 Bloods would have played Out of Competition. Lee was set to chair the jury. The movie would have marked Netflix’s return to the festival after a three year absence, sparked by the festival banning non-theatrical movies in their Competition. We understand the film wasn’t announced today on account of it being earmarked as a special presentation.

    A number of the chosen movies will play at festivals later this year, providing the festivals can go ahead. A handful of movies that were expected for Cannes this year will wait to debut next Cannes. And, of course, there are other movies that would have played at the festival but which weren’t announced today.

    The festival has received plenty of criticism in recent years for the lack of diversity in its lineup. This year’s selection showcases a record number of women directors alongside the festival’s usually solid share of films from Asia, North Africa and the Middle East. But Steve McQueen is one of only two black filmmakers among more than 50 directors. You can read more about McQueen’s two films here.

    The festival also announced today that Cannes President Pierre Lescure has been re-elected to the role to serve a third term.
