Cannes Official Selection 2014 Announced!
Cronenberg! Loach! Egoyan! Leigh! Dardennes!

The line-up for the Cannes Film Festival 2014 has been announced, and it's a selection that includes some Festival regulars as well as some less familiar faces. So don your beret, strike up a Gauloise and peruse the full list of films in competition, screening out of competition and in the Un Certain Regard categories below.

It's a strong selection, albeit mainly from directors who have appeared at the Festival multiple times before. Ken Loach (Jimmy's Hall), Mike Leigh (Mr Turner, pictured), Jean-Luc Godard (Goodbye To Language), the Dardennes brothers (Two Days, One Night), David Cronenberg (Maps To The Stars) and Atom Egoyan (The Captive) are all regulars. In fact, Damian Szifron and Bennett Miller are the only directors in the competition who are at the Festival for the first time.

Screening out of competition is How To Train Your Dragon 2, occupying the traditional big-animated-film-screening-at-Cannes spot. The Un Certain Regard section will see the bow of Ryan Gosling's directorial debut, now called Lost River and not How To Catch A Monster anymore. Fellow actors Mathieu Amalric and Asia Argento also have directorial efforts screening in that strand.

The Festival runs from May 14 to 25 this year, and as ever we'll be covering all the news as it happens.
