The line-up of this year's Cannes film festival is now complete after the announcement of the Directors' Fortnight and Critics' Week selections.
The Director's Fortnight has added 20 titles to its already-announced opener, The Congress, from Ari "Waltz With Bashir" Folman, a part-animated adaptation of Stanislaw "Solaris" Lem's sci-fi novel The Futurological Congress.
Highlights include La Danza de la Realidad, the first film for more than two decades from cult Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky (best known for El Topo), and a complementary documentary, Jodorowsky's Dune, about the director's disastrous attempt to film Frank Herbert's giant novel. Two more Chilean directors, Sebastian Silva, with his Sundance hit Magic Magic, starring Michael Cera, and Marcela Said with The Summer of the Flying Fish, have had films selected alongside.
Directors Fortnight artistic director Edouard Waintrop has ensured a sizeable US presence: room has been found for Jim Mickle's cannibal thriller remake We Are What We Are with Bill Sage and Ambyr Childers, and Jeremy Saulnier's Kickstarter funded revenge thriller Blue Ruin, described as about a "beach bum whose quiet life is upended by dreadful news".
After a shut-out in the main Festival competition, British representation comes by way of the second feature from The Arbor director Clio Barnard, whose The Selfish Giant is a contemporised adaptation of the Oscar Wilde short story. Irish director Ruairi Robinson is there with his debut, Last Days of Mars, a Red Planet-set horror with Liev Schreiber and Romola Garai, while Gangs of Wasseypur's Anurag Kashyap has had his follow-up, Ugly, selected. Another notable returning absentee is Marcel "Sorrow and the Pity" Ophuls, who brings to Cannes his first full length film since 1994's Veillées d'Armes, an autobiographical piece called Un Voyageur.
The Critics Week has also unveiled its Cannes programme, with the opening film slot going to Suzanne, from French director Katell Quillévéré, about a woman who abandoned her child as a teenager. Another Sundance hit, Ain't Them Bodies Saints, makes its appearance here, as does another British effort, the Scotland-set For Those in Peril from writer-director Paul Wright. Eric Cantona will also put in an appearance, alongsode Beatrice Dalle and Alain-Fabien Delon in French sex comedy Les Rencontres d'Après Minuit. The Critics Week closing film is yet to be announced.
The 2013 Cannes film festival runs from 15 to 26 May.
