The Directors’ Fortnight parallel section of the Cannes Film Festival has unveiled its lineup for the 2021 edition which runs from July 7-17. Scroll down for the full list which is being updated.
Fortnight chief Paolo Moretti, who took over the reins in 2019, presented the roster from the Forum des Images in Paris, saying, “After a very painful year for everyone, we are happy to present a selection of discovery.” Out of 24 features, 22 filmmakers are showing their films for first time at Cannes.
The non-competitive section in recent years has shown some of the most buzzed about movies to emerge from the festival, including Robert Eggers’ The Lighthouse, Sean Baker’s The Florida Project (Baker is in the main competition this year with Red Rocket) and The Rider by Nomadland Oscar winner Chloé Zhao.
Veteran documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman will receive the Fortnight’s Carrosse d’Or honor on opening day. Wiseman will also hold a masterclass and his 2018 film Monrovia, Indiana will be screened.
