The 55th edition of Cannes Critics’ Week sidebar has now announced its main program, including seven films screening in competition. The sidebar is dedicated to films coming from first- and second-time filmmakers, and always promises a fertile ground for discovering new and emerging talent. The section will open with Justine Triet’s “In Bed With Victoria” and close out with a selection of three short films from Sandrine Kiberlain, Laetitia Casta and Chloe Sevigny.
