PARIS — As the Cannes Film Festival gears up to celebrate its 65th birthday, fest topper Thierry Fremaux has added seven more filmmaking friends to his elite guestlist.
Candida Brady‘s U.K. documentary Trashed will get a special screening.
Australian helmer Wayne Blair‘s first film, The Sapphires, has been added to the Midnight Screenings, along with Franck Khalfoun‘s Maniac.
French director Gilles Bourdos‘ latest work of art, Renoir, will screen as part of the Un Certain Regard closing ceremony.
Adam Leon will bring Gimme the Loot, the director’s debut feature that premiered at SXSW and won the narrative feature Grand Jury Prize. Sundance Selects will release the film stateside. The film will screen in Un Certain Regard alongside Aida Begic’s Djeca from Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Hungarian Gyorgy Palfi‘s montage film Final Cut, produced by Bela Tarr, will close Cannes Classics on May 25.
As in years past, while the festival holds an April press conference to announce the lineup, Fremaux always leaves room for late additions.
The Cannes Film Festival runs May 16-27.
