As announced at the 18 April press conference, here are the films being added to the 2019 Official Selection.

Statements in inverted commas are by General Delegate Thierry Frémaux. They are in addition to the comments on previously announced films.


Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood by Quentin Tarantino (2 hrs 45)
“We were afraid the film would not be ready, as it wouldn’t be ready until late July, but Quentin Tarantino, who has not left the editing room in four months, is a real, loyal and punctual child of Cannes! Like for Inglourious Basterds, he’ll definitely be there – 25 years after the Palme d’or for Pulp Fiction – with a finished film screened in 35mm and his cast in tow (Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt). His film is a love letter to the Hollywood of his childhood, a rock music tour of 1969, and an ode to cinema as a whole.

In addition to thanking Quentin and his crew for spending days and nights in the editing room, the Festival wants to give special thanks to the teams at Sony Pictures, who made all of this possible.”


Mektoub, My Love: Intermezzo by Abdellatif Kechiche (4 hrs)
“I saw the film last Thursday, as it was still being edited, and definitely right in the middle of edits! But it is going to be finished and the director says it will be four hours long. And screened at the end of the Festival so the DCP has time to get there. French-Tunisian director Abdellatif Kechiche returns to Cannes with the Intermezzo of Mektoub, My Love, six years after his Palme d’or with La Vie d’Adèle (Blue Is the Warmest Color). The groundwork for this saga storytelling and extraordinary portrait of French youth in the 90s was laid in his Canto Uno, and it will be a pleasure to see its cast again."
