After a sumptuous 2019 vintage, whose notes lasted right up until the recent Oscar Awards with the triumph of the Palme d’Or picture Parasite by South Korea’s Bong Joon Ho, the Cannes Film Festival is soon to decant the programme of its 73rd edition, scheduled to unspool between 12 – 23 May 2020. Only two things are known for sure so far: American filmmaker Spike Lee will preside over the Official Competition jury (read our news) and Cannes selector Thierry Frémaux will have a very wide range of films and talented applicants to choose from (which isn’t to say we won’t enjoy a few surprises). An overview of these contenders seems fitting, before they officially enter into the swirling mass of films that will be battling it out in the selection process for their place in the sun, atop the Mount Olympus of world auteur cinema that is the Cannes Film Festival.

At the forefront of these contenders are three filmmakers already in possession of a Palme d’Or: Italy’s Nanni Moretti, who’ll be staking his bets on Tre piani, Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul armed with Memoria and France’s Laurent Cantet brandishing Arthur Rambo.

Standing tall amongst the filmmakers having already triumphed in Cannes, we find Japan’s Naomi Kawase with her title True Mothers, Denmark’s Thomas Vinterberg with offering Another Round [+lee también:

, Drift Away and Serre moi fort  respectively. For the record, the potential inclusion of American director Sofia Coppola in the competition, with On The Rocks, is contingent on her film being released in French cinemas (a precondition for all works in contention for the Palme d’Or) since the film is produced by the Apple platform.

In terms of filmmakers having already participated in the competition on the Croisette, notable names include American director Wes Anderson with The French Dispatch [+lee también:

, Japanese filmmaker Kiyoshi Kurosawa with Wife of a Spy, the Iraqi Hiner Saleem with Goodnight, Soldier, and maybe even American star Sean Penn with Flag Day (even if the reception The Last Face was treated to in Cannes 2016 does seem difficult to move past on paper).

The most serious contenders for a first possible outing to the French festival’s competition notably include Hungary’s Ildikó Enyedi with The Story of My Wife, French director Mia Hansen-Løve with Bergman Island, American Chloé Zhao with Nomadland, her compatriot David Lowery with The Green Knight, China’s Ann Hui with Love After Love, Lebanon’s Danielle Arbid with the French-Belgian co-production Passion simple [+lee también:

Possible films? Probable films? Amongst these many indications (which films will be ready in the spring? Who made them? Who is selling them?), and the suppositions that are cranked out by prognosticators-come-bar-room-philosophisers in the field of world cinema before the sword of selection finally falls, we also find, among various other hopes and dreams, that of discovering Tenet [+lee también:
