Pierre Lescure, President of the Festival de Cannes, and Thierry Frémaux, General Delegate, presented the Official Selection at a press conference at the Normandie cinema in Paris.

Highlights from the selection include Woody Allen's professor-meets-student affair Irrational Man and Gus Van Sant, Justin Kurzel’s take on Macbeth, starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, Pixar's hotly-anticipated Inside Out, the latest in the Mad Max franchise and the next movie from Gomorrah director Matteo Garrone.

The Brits are not coming, however, with Asif Kapadia’s documentary, Amy, about the late singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse, the only film with a director from the UK. At the same time, several foreign-language film-makers have made their latest movies in English – Yorgos Lanthimos's The Lobster, Paolo Sorrentino's Youth and Joachim Trier's Louder Than Bombs to name a few.

Oscar-winning directors Joel and Ethan Coen will together preside over the main jury. Isabella Rossellini is president of the jury for Cannes' Un Certain Regard sidebar, and will also present Stig Bjorkman's documentary about her mother Ingrid Bergman.
