Cannes Film Festival confirms 2017 lineup

The list of films

The Cannes Film Festival line-up was confirmed today, offering a short preview of what to expect at this year’s iconic event. It’s a terrific year to be an up-and-coming filmmaker, with nine first-time filmmakers making the list for the 2017 collection. Netflix will be brining two films to the event; “Okja” from Bong Joon-ho and “The Meyerowitz Stories” from Noah Baumbach.

David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” reboot made the list this year, and the TV series from Jane Campion, “Top Of The Lake,” was also included in this year’s festivities.
