With some very lengthy shortlists, films being submitted later and later, decisions to follow suit (compounded by the festival’s wish to allow itself the greatest possible clarity when making its selection, and maybe even by the tactic of making life a tad more difficult for the selectors at major festivals coming later in the year) and a stricter code of silence, the task of identifying, in advance, the lucky titles chosen for the different selections of the Cannes Film Festival has become an increasingly divinatory exercise fuelled by a number of investigatory elements collating rumours, tips, trends (before being chosen – or not – the films are seen by certain people, and their potential for Cannes is evaluated in a wider context), and even intuitions. The only things we currently know for certain are that The Second Act [+leggi anche:

by Quentin Dupieux (see the news) will open the 77th edition (14-25 May) and that Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga by Australia’s George Miller (see the news) will make a splash out of competition.

However, the crystal ball is rapidly getting clearer and clearer now, exactly one week away from the Official Selection press conference in Paris, during which Thierry Frémaux (flanked by president Iris Knobloch) will reveal the results of his ruminations, judicious balancing acts and combinations that will inevitably have a snowball effect, subsequently redefining the content of the parallel sections. And so, let us fling open the window to Cannes and gaze into the 2024 "palantír".

In the official competition, jury chair Greta Gerwig (see the news) should allegedly be able to watch Bird [+leggi anche:

by Danish-based, Iranian-born director Ali Abassi, and we also mustn’t overlook the likelihood of Maria by Chile’s Pablo Larrain being picked. Then, all bets are off for the remaining slots (apart from the French contingent) with, among other outsiders, Georgia’s Dea Kulumbegashvili with Those Who Find Me, Greece’s Athina Rachel Tsangari with the English-language flick Harvest, and even a wild card in the form of L’effacement by Algeria’s Karim Moussaoui.

As for the French hopefuls (the fates of whom are traditionally sealed on the evening before the revelation of the Official Selection), it’s anybody’s guess, apart from Jacques Audiard, who seems an almost dead cert with Emilia Perez [+leggi anche:

For the rest of the Official Selection (Out of Competition, Cannes Première, Un Certain Regard, Special Screenings and Midnight Screenings), a lap of honour for the USA’s Francis Ford Coppola (with this year marking the 50th anniversary of his first Palme d’Or, for The Conversation) with his new opus, Megalopolis, is not totally out of the question (provided that a distributor such as Apple gets on board quickly). The programme could potentially also comprise the documentaries The Belle from Gaza [+leggi anche:

Finally, a clutch of animated flicks could also manage to wangle their way onto the Croisette this year (although Cannes has never been very fond of the genre, especially with the Annecy Film Festival coming soon after it in France).
