2023 Cannes Film Festival Lineup: Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson, and Steve McQueen, Plus Indiana Jones


The Cannes Film Festival unveiled the 2023 lineup for its 76th edition on Thursday morning, and yes, Martin Scorsese‘s Killers of the Flower Moon will screen at the festival, albeit out of competition.

Joining Scorsese in the out-of-competition section are James Mangold, who will be bringing his Disney tentpole Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny to the Croisette; Sam Levinson, whose HBO series The Idol was welcomed despite the controversy swirling around it; plus new films from Maiwenn (Jeanne du Barry starring Johnny Depp) and Kim Jee-woon (Cobweb starring Song Kang-ho).

Wes Anderson‘s Asteroid City leads the competition titles along with Jonathan Glazer‘s Holocaust drama The Zone of Interest and Todd Haynes‘ thriller May December. Those three films will compete for the Palme d’Or along with new films from Ken Loach and Wim Wenders (who has two films at Cannes), plus Kore-eda Hirokazu, Alice Rohrwacher, Catherine Breillat, and Nuri Bilge Ceylan.

Cannes broke its own record by accepting six films from female directors, including Breillat and Rohrwacher, the latter of whom joins fellow Italians Nanni Moretti and Marco Bellocchio in competition. There are also two feature documentaries in competition this year — this after Michael Moore‘s Fahrenheit 9/11 won the Palme d’Or in 2004 from a jury headed by Quentin Tarantino.

Like Top Gun: Maverick and Elvis last year, expect Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, Killers of the Flower Moon, and Asteroid City to be the hottest tickets at the festival, where the stars will be walking the red carpet. Pedro Almodóvar’s short film Strange Way of Life starring Ethan Hawke and Pedro Pascal will also be screening in France next month, as will Steve McQueen‘s documentary Occupied City, about the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam during World War II.

“We saw more than 2,000 films. These numbers are extravagant and, at the same time, reflect the health of world cinema and the aspiration to make films everywhere,” Cannes Film Festival Director Thierry Frémaux said at Thursday’s press conference, where he was joined by the festival’s new President, Iris Knobloch. Frémaux also noted that the lineup isn’t locked yet and to expect some additions, which are rumored to include the Emma Stone movie Poor Things from director Yorgos Lanthimos and possibly Ladj Ly’s follow-up to Les Miserables.

Triangle of Sadness filmmaker Ruben Östlund will preside over the competition jury for the Cannes Film Festival, which takes place from May 16-27. The full lineup (for now) can be found below:

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
