It is Hirokazu Kore-eda and many other famous directors' new works gathered at the Cannes Film Festival

    On April 14th, local time, the President of the French Cannes Film Festival, Pierre Lescu, and the Artistic Director Thierry Fumau held a press conference to announce the main competition, "Un Certain Regard" and non-competition of this year's film festival. The film list of other units officially kicked off the 75th Cannes Film Festival. Regrettably, after last year, Chinese films were again absent from the main competition unit.
    The first batch of film lists announced that day totaled 47, and the number dropped sharply from last year's 83. It is believed that on the one hand, the reason for this is that last year was really "clearing the inventory", on the other hand, because the new crown epidemic is still raging all over the world. People are forced to slow down the speed of filming.
    Although the number has decreased, the works themselves are more expected than last year, especially the main competition unit of the Palme d'Or, where famous directors gathered, and in the pre-epidemic period, it was also a luxurious lineup. The 18 shortlisted films are still mainly works from European directors, but the number of local French works has decreased, from three in previous years to one, which is "Brother and Sister" directed by Arnold Deplechamp.
