Official Cannes 2014 Poster

The lineup for this years Cannes Film Festival was announced on Thursday. The Festival runs from May 14th to the 25th. 18 films will compete for the  Palme d’Or (Golden Palm) award. Last years winner, BLUE IS THE WARMEST COLOR ended up not qualifying for an Oscar. Cannes is not as influential as Toronto or Telluride in the Oscar race, but it does begin the conversation. After Cannes screenings people will jump on Twitter to announce that they have just seen this years best picture winner. That is usually the kiss of death for a movie this early in the year.
