One week ago, the 2021 Cannes film lineup was officially announced and it certainly seems like there is going to be plenty of exciting and investing films for attendees to watch through July 6th – 17.
However, the festival lineup was not one-hundred-percent complete when the announcement was made public last week but gratefully, thanks to The Hollywood Reporter, we now know a few more of the films that have been added to the Cannes 2021 lineup.
Animated feature Where Is Anne Frank? from Oscar-nominated Israeli director Ari Folman, has been included as an out of competition title. Gaspar Noe’s Vortex was added to the new Cannes Premier sidebar, with Yohan Manco’s Mes Freres Et Moi joining the Un Certain Regard competition program.
Bill Murray’s Party: New World, The Cradle of a Civilisation, directed by Andrew Muscato as well as Noémie Merlant’s Mi iubta Mon amour, Maxime Roy’s Les Heroiques and Wen Shipei’s Are You Lonesome Tonight? have all been added as special screenings.
Despite all these exciting new announcements, we are yet to learn what the opening film for the Un Certain Regard will be, as well as the final film of the festival.
