Full fires on the Croisette for the inevitable festival of Cannes, which will be held from May 14 to 25, 2019.

The ceremony will be chaired by the Mexican Alejandro for and will open with the screening of "The Dead Do not Die" by Jim Jarmusch.

For the moment, the direction does not yet really know on which work the Festival will end. Maybe on the movie Sibyl by Justine Triet who will be released at the cinema at the end of the festival.

After the Weinstein Affair and the #MeToo movement, the organizers were keen to put women, actresses, producers and directors in the spotlight.

French director Claire Denis will chair the Jury for Short Films and Cinefondation, which rewards 3 out of 17 films made by film school students, while Lebanese director Nadine Labaki will chair the Jury "Un certain Look.

And a special place will be given to the films of the great inventive director Agnès Varda, who died this year.

Many early feature-length films of "genre" will compete with characters such as "unemployed, cops, mafia, parasites, painters and women painters," said Thierry Frémaux. The selection continues the refreshing last year.

There are of course festival regulars (Jarmusch, Almodovar, Desplechin, Dolan) and also those who will compete for a second, or even a third, palm (Dardenne, Loach, Malick). But there are especially the newcomers with eight directors for the first time selected in competition (Justine Triet, Mati Diop, Ira Sachs, Diao Yi'nan, Jessica Hausner, Ladj Ly, Corneliu Porumboiu, Céline Sciamma) including two first films ( The Misérables and Atlantiques).

A panel of the most delightful films.
