The feature films chosen for the Official Selection of the Cannes Film Festival 2017 have been announced, giving us our first glimpse at what could be the year's best in movie-making.
According to Konbini, Cannes Festival president Pierre Lescure, alongside General Delegate Thierry Frémaux, unveiled the festival screenings in a press conference.
Eighteen films will be in competition at the festival, including The Killing of a Sacred Deer, starring Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman and Alicia Silverstone, The Beguiled directed by Sofia Coppola along with new films by Andrey Zvyagintsev and Michael Haneke.
The festival's opening film will be Arnaud Desplechin's Ismael's Ghosts. The festival will take place from May 17 to 28 and it plans to pay homage to Andrzej Wajda, the late Polish director who passed away last October.
