Cannes Film Festival 2024: The Official Selection

The Cannes Film Festival has announced its lineup for 2024. Highlights among the selections include Andrea Arnold's latest offering, "Bird," and Ali Abbasi's "The Apprentice."

"Bird" marks Arnold's return to narrative filmmaking after nearly a decade, starring Barry Keoghan and Franz Rogowski. Abbasi's "The Apprentice" depicts the story of a young Donald Trump and lawyer Roy Cohn building Trump’s real estate empire in 1970s and 80s New York, with Sebastian Stan portraying Trump and Maria Bakalova as Ivanka.

Other returning filmmakers include David Cronenberg, Paul Schrader, and Jia Zhang-Ke. Francis Ford Coppola's long-awaited "Megalopolis" will also premiere in competition, 50 years after his previous Palme d'Or win. The festival will run from May 14-25.
