The Cannes 2020 Film Festival may have been shelved, but that hasn’t stopped the organisers revealing its full list of the 54 movies that will be given the prized ‘Official Selection’ label when they release in cinemas.

Courtesy of the official Cannes website (opens in new tab), the list is made up of a diverse range of films and filmmakers, including Viggo Mortensen’s debut as a director in Falling, Pixar’s Soul, a new Studio Ghibli movie, and Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch. 

Steve McQueen – the director of 12 Years a Slave and Widows – has two films in the line-up, both of which focus on the racism suffered by the UK’s West Indian immigrant communities in the '60s and '70s. They are dedicated to the memory of George Floyd and are part of a six-part mini TV series that's essentially six films. There are also several first-time directors, newcomers to Cannes, documentaries, and animated movies all feature.

The Cannes Film Festival, which was originally set to run from May 12-23, will not be giving out its prestigious Palme D’or award to signify the best film of the event – last year won by Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite (opens in new tab), which later went on to win Best Picture at the 2020 Oscars.

Read on for the full Cannes 2020 list, and try and see how many you can tick off before next year’s event rolls around. You might just find the next Parasite.
