Twenty one films are in competition for the prestigious Palme d’Or. Movie Directors who have been honored in the past in Cannes are back on the Croisette: Pedro Almodovar, the Dardenne brothers, Ken Loach or Xavier Dolan. Quentin Tarantino is also higlhy expected with his new film: Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and Al Pacino.
Cannes film festival finds itself in need of a boost. Last year, Festival Director Thierry Frémaux declared films from Netflix ineligible for the awards. The streaming giant won’t play by the festival’s rules on theatrical distribution in France, so it doesn't get invited to Cannes.
