#Cannes 2020: Pixar’s ‘Soul,’ Wes Anderson’s ‘French Dispatch’ lead 2020 lineup

Cannes 2020: Pixar’s ‘Soul,’ Wes Anderson’s ‘French Dispatch’ lead 2020 lineup

Pixar’s “Soul,” Wes Anderson’s star-packed “The French Dispatch” and Steve McQueen’s “Mangrove” and Lover’s Rock” are among the 56 movies which will receive a Cannes 2020 label as part of the festival’s eclectic Official Selection.

Also included in this year’s lineup, are Cannes regulars such as Francois Ozon’s anticipated “Summer 85,” Naomi Kawase’s “True Mothers” and Maiwenn’s “DNA.”

The other celebrated filmmakers who will receive the Cannes 2020 label are Jonathan Nossiter with “Last Words,” Im Sang-soo with “Event” and Thomas Vinterberg with “Another Round.” As many other titles on this year’s lineup, these films were initially tipped for the festival before it canceled its physical edition in April and sticked with the French Riviera-set fest for various reasons, ranging from loyalty to distribution/marketing strategy. For instance, “Summer 85,” which marks Ozon’s follow up to his Berlin Golden Bear winning “By The Grace of God,” will be released in French theaters on July 15.

Due to the health crisis, the roster was announced on Wednesday evening by Cannes’ artistic director Thierry Fremaux and president Pierre Lescure during a TV interview that aired on Canal Plus, instead of the traditional press conference. While the Official Selection doesn’t comprise the usual categories such as the Competition, Un Certain Regard and Out of Competition, Fremaux editorialized the lineup’s presentation by announcing the films under “the faithful” for helmers who’ve been at Cannes in the Official Selection at least once, newcomers, first features, comedies, documentaries and animated features.

Among the daring and singular movies from emerging directors who made the cut this year are Pascual Sisto’s “John And The Hole,” Danielle Arbid’s “Passion Simple,” Nicolas Maury’s “Garcon Chiffon,” Charlène Favier with “Slalom,” as well as Viggo Mortensen’s “Falling,” Pascal Plante’s “Nadia, Butterfly” and Ninja Thyberg’s “Pleasure.” Other labeled films from well-established directors who are Cannes newcomers include Marie-Castille Mention-schaar’s “Goodman” and Yeon Sang-ho’s “Peninsula.”

Although there won’t be a physical festival, the selected movies will get the opportunity to world premiere in the real world thanks to alliances forged between Cannes and other festivals, notably Toronto and San Sebastian which have accepted to consider labeled films for competitive sections. The other fests that are expected to play Cannes-labeled films include Telluride, Deauville, Busan, Morelia, New York, Sundance and Fremaux’s own Lumiere festival in Lyon. Venice Film Festival, meanwhile, won’t play ball with Cannes after discussions about a potential alliance fell off last month.

On Tuesday, Fremaux sent out a letter giving out some key figures about this year’s roster and said the selection committee had received a record 2,067 features for consideration in spite of the health crisis and subsequent cancelation of the physical edition. Fremaux also said feature debuts are comprising 26.7% of the selection with 15 pics. The lineup also includes 16 films directed by women, two more than last year.
