Official Selection for Cannes 2015

The Official Selection for the 2015 Cannes Film Festival has been announced today!
Discover it on the Festival's website. There's a lot of goodies.

Some well-established directors are in competition, such as Nanni Moretti, who won the Palme d'Or in 2001 for The Son's Room (La stanza del figlio), Gus Van Sant, who won it in 2003 for Elephant, and Hou Hsiao-Hsien who has been in competition six times and won the Jury Prize in 1993 for The Puppetmaster. But there is also a lot of newcomers, and in particular the Hungarian László Nemes, who was the assistant of Bela Tarr, with his first film, Saul Fia (Son of Saul).

Woody Allen will present Irrational Man out of competition.
