Cannes 2015 Line-Up Includes Pixar’s Inside Out; La Tete Haute To Open Festival



The 68th Cannes Film Festival is now little under a month away, and Variety has the skinny on the event’s impressive line-up, which includes Carol and French comedy-drama La Tete Haute – itself set to open the festival on May 13 – not to mention the likes of Pixar’s emotional animation Inside Out and Mad Max: Fury Road screening out of competition.

For a full rundown of those candidates in question, you can consult the list down below. Due to take place from May 13 to May 25, it’s expected that more films will be added to the cinematic selection in the coming days, but already the billing is chock full of eye-catching releases. Interestingly, the aforementioned La Tete Haute will be the first festival opener since 1987 to be directed by a female filmmaker, in this case, Emmanuelle Bercot.

The 68th Cannes Film Festival will begin on May 13 and run right through until May 25. Emmanuelle Bercot’s La Tete Haute will kickstart the event with a dose of French comedy-drama. To gain a gist of the candidates, be sure to check out the list below.
