Cannes Adds Seven More Titles to Lineup; SXSW Winner 'Gimme the Loot' Among New Additions

"Gimme the Loot"

The upcoming 65th Cannes Film Festival has added seven more titles to its lineup.

Among the latest additions is Adam Leon's acclaimed debut "Gimme the Loot," which premiered earlier this year at SXSW where it won the Narrative Grand Jury Prize and got picked up for distribution by Sundance Selects (it opens in the US this summer). The film will screen in Un Certain Regard, alongside Aida Begic's "Djeca" from Bosnia and Herzegovina. [Go HERE for our profile of Adam Leon, and HERE for our review of "Gimme the Loot."]

Other newcomers include a special screening of Candida Brady's UK documentary "Trashed"; Midnight Screenings selections "The Sapphires" directed by Australian Wayne Blair, and Franck Khalfoun's "Maniac"; Gilles Bourdo's "Renoir," which will screen at the closing ceremonies of Un Certain Regard; and the Hungarian montage film "Final Cut - Hölgyeim És Uraim," directed by György Pálfi and produced by Bela Tarr, which will serve as the closing night film for Cannes Classics.

Cannes runs May 16 - 27.
