Director's Fortnight Films Announced for Cannes / Trailers: Ismael's Ghosts and The B-Side

Good Monday friends...It's a Monday.  Here's some stuff about the Telluride Film Festival...maybe.


Official selections for the Cannes Film Festival's Director's Fortnight were announced Thursday. The DF section sometimes provides a film or two that make their way to Colorado for Labor Day,  Last year Pablo Larrain's Neruda was selected for the DF section and then made the trip.

This year's announced films don't seem to provide a film title that immediately leaps out as a Telluride suspect.  Here are the films announced:

You can find some of the coverage for the Director's Fortnight selections here at the official site as well as here from Indiewire and here from Hollywood Elsewhere.


We got a look this past week at new trailers for the Cannes opening night film, Ismael's Ghosts from director Arnuad Desplechin, as well as for Errol Morris' The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman's Portrait Photography.  The B-Side was a part of the TFF 43 program last fall.

Desplechin's film features past Telluride tribute recipient Marion Cotillard as well as Mathieu Almaric and Charlotte Gainsbourg in a story of a film makers life sent into chaos when a former lover returns to his life.

Here's the trailer from YouTube:

In addition, here is linked coverage for the trailer from:

Ismael's Ghosts is a rare Cannes opening night film that could make its way to TFF #44.

Meanwhile, the trailer for the new Errol Morris doc that focuses on the photography of Elsa Dorfman was also released at the end of the week.  It's scheduled to open on June 2.

Here is that trailer also via YouTube:

And additional material about the trailer and film can be found at The Playlist.

Thanks for reading.  I'll have more on Thursday.
