Cannes Directors’ Fortnight Includes Robert Pattinson's ‘The Lighthouse,’ Netflix's ‘Wounds’ and Luca Guadagnino Short

Cannes’ prestigious Directors’ Fortnight, which runs parallel to the Cannes Film Festival, has released their lineup and it includes the Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe drama’ The Lighthouse,’ Netflix’s film ‘Wounds,’ and a short film by esteemed director Luca Guadagnino.

The non-competitive Directors’ Fortnight event is separate from the Cannes Film Festival and is organized by the French Directors’ Guild. It prides itself on its “freedom of thinking” but is inevitably closely associated with the festival. Recently, it has increasingly shown some of the most buzzed about U.S. movies to emerge from the festival circuit, including ‘The Florida Project’ and ‘The Rider.’

Last year’s lineup included Gaspar Noé’s ‘Climax’ (read our review HERE), Ciro Guerra and Cristina Gallego’s ‘Birds of Passage,’ and Mamoru Hosoda’s acclaimed animated feature ‘Mirai.’

Directors’ Fortnight runs from May 15th to the 25th. The complete lineup is as follows:
