Cannes Schedule Revealed; ‘Wonderstruck’ Up First plus Masterclasses from Eastwood and Cuarón

The full schedule of all films for the 2017 Cannes Film Festival has been announced and Todd Haynes’ Wonderstruck will be first out of the gate for In Competition films in the running for the Palme d’Or. It will premiere on Thursday, May 18th. Lynne Ramsey’s You Were Never Really Here, starring Joaquin Phoenix, will close the festival on the 27th.

Two masterclasses were added to the Cannes Classics series; the first with Clint Eastwood on Sunday, May 21st and the second with Alfonso Cuarón on Wednesday, May 24th. Eastwood was jury President at the festival in 1994 when Pulp Fiction was awarded the Palme. Cannes Classics will screen his 1992 Best Picture and Best Director Oscar winner Unforgiven on Saturday the 20th. Cuarón debuted at Cannes with Paris, I Love You in the Un Certain Regard section in 2006 and was an In Competition jury member in 2008 (the Palme went to The Class that year). He won the Best Director Oscar in 2013 for Gravity.

About Erik Anderson

Erik blames his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched them together since he opened his eyes. They also watched Miss Universe religiously every year (the pageantry!) and Erik came to the conclusion that the combination of these two things ultimately led him down the path to obsessing about awards and ACTRESSING. He began at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association), the International Press Academy and is the founder/editor of AwardsWatch.
