Nine feature films, 10 short and mid-length films and 2 special screenings are heading to Cannes Film Festival sidebar Critics' Week, which announced its lineup today.
Coming off last week's announcement of the Official Competition, Critics Week brought along two films from filmmakers returning to the festival: Sole American David Robert Mitchell and his "It Follows" (Mitchell was in Critics' Week for "The Myth of the American Sleepover"), and Israeli filmmaker Shira Geffen with "Self Made," a film that comes seven years after she won the Camera d'Or for "Les Méduses." Other notable films include French filmmaker Djinn Carrenard's "F.L.A Faire l’Amour," which will open the festival, and actress-turned-director Melanie Laurent with her "Reprise."
