While the official selection of feature films for the 66th Cannes Film Festival are still a few days away, the festival has announced both its official short film selection and the program for Cinéfondation (which screens student work).

 
The Cinéfondation and Short Films Jury -- presided by Jane Campion -- will awards the winners for the Short Film Competition and the Cinéfondation Selection.

A complete list of films and descriptions of each program below as printed in the festival's press release.
 
 
THE SHORT FILMS COMPETITION
 
This year, the Selection Committee received 3,500 short films, representing productions from no fewer than 132 countries.
 
Nine films will compete in 2013 for the Short Film Palme d’or, to be awarded by Jane Campion, President of the Jury, at the Closing Ceremony of the 66th Festival de Cannes on 26th May.
 
For the first time, a Palestinian film will take part in the Short Films Competition.

 THE 2013 CINÉFONDATION SELECTION
 
The Cinéfondation Selection selected 18 films (14 fiction films and 4 animated films) among the 1,550 submitted this year from 277 schools from all around the world.
 
By focusing on the quality of work submitted by lesser-known institutions, the Selection is a true reflection of the diversity of film schools. This year sees a particularly significant broadening of scope, with a third of the schools being selected for the first time and one country – Chile – which has never previously been selected.
 
The three Cinéfondation Prizes will be awarded at a ceremony prior to the screening of the winning films on Friday 24th May in the Buñuel Theatre.
