68th Cannes Film Festival Unveils Lineup!

The 2015 Cannes Film Festival lineup is unveiled — and ScreenCraft will be covering the festival from Cannes, France!  We look forward to interviewing screenwriters at the world’s most iconic film festival.

The festival will run from May 13-May 24 on the Croisette in Cannes, France.

The titles vying for this year’s coveted Palm d’Or include Gus Van Sant’s “Sea of Trees,” starring Matthew McConaughey and Naomi Watts; 1950’s romantic drama “Carol” by Todd Haynes, starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara; Denis Villeneuve’s cartel thriller “Sicario” with Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin and Emily Blunt; Nanni Moretti’s autobiographical drama “Mia madre,” which co-stars John Turturro; and Italian auteur Paolo Sorrentino’s English-language film, “Youth,” starring Rachel Weisz and Michael Caine.

Aside from the titles in competition, there are many star-studded premieres including Woody Allen’s dramedy “Irrational Man,” which stars Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone, and the Pixar animated film “Inside Out,” as well as a special screening of Natalie Portman’s “A Tale of Love and Darkness.”

And we would be remiss in omitting what’s likely to be one of the biggest movies of the summer which is getting a huge Cannes premiere and surrounding promotion: “Mad Max: Fury Road.”
