These are the films which I am most excited about seeing at The Cannes Film Festival 2019. After the opening night film, the list is in alphabetical order by English title. I always try to catch all the films in the main competition. See also my Top Picks list.
Cannes is a wonderful festival with so many films to see and so many things happening. I will not make it to all of these but I will certainly try to catch as many as possible!
