Cannes 2019 unveils competition lineup




Cannes unveiled their full selections today.

Surprisingly, Quentin Tarantino's “ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD” is missing. Only 4/19 of the films In Competition were directed by women. The full lineup has 13 female directors all in all. Best Documentary Oscar winner Asif Kapadia (Senna, AMY) will premiere his new documentary “Diego Maradona” out of competition.

Elton John biopic “Rocketman” and Nicholas Winding Refn's Amazon Prime series “Too Old to Die Young” will premiere on the Croisette out of competition.

Not surprised by the lack of Tarantino, but expected it because his films take a long time on post-production since Sally Menke's death.
