April 24, 2014 | By Romain Rancurel

The 67th Cannes Film Festival’s parallel sections have unveiled their film selection!

The Directors' Fortnight (La Quinzaine des Réalisateurs)

Cannes parallel section’s artistic director Edouard Waintrop unveiled the non-competitive line-up for the Directors’ Fortnight, organised by the French Directors Society (Société des Réalisateurs de Films). The opening film will be Céline Sciamma’s Girlhood (Bande de Filles), revolving around a girl gang in a tough Paris neighbourhood, while Matthew Warchus’ Pride will close it.

The International Critics' Week

La Semaine de la Critique is a respected parallel selection of the Cannes Film Festival, focusing on first and second works. Before announcing the 2014 line-up, the selection committee screened 1,200 feature-length films and 1,770 shorts. Djinn Carrénard’s Faire L’Amour will open the 53rd edition of Cannes Critics’ Week, while French director Thomas Lilti’s Hippocrate will close the selection. Mélanie Laurent’s second feature film, Respire, will be presented in a special screening, as will The Kindergarten Teacher by Israeli director Nadav Lapid. The feature-film jury at the Critics’ Week 2014 will be chaired by British filmmaker Andrea Arnold.

The ACID Program in Cannes

Since 1993, the ACID section has been an important parallel selection independent of the Festival de Cannes organized by the Association for Independent Cinema and its Distribution (ACID). It will screen nine feature films by 10 directors (5 men, 5 women), fiction and documentary, chosen by ACID filmmakers among hundreds of works from all around the world. The selection aims to give visibility to directors whose work is scarcely distributed, in order to facilitate a theatrical release. This year’s selection marks the return of Adele Exarchopoulos, one year after being awarded the Palme d’Or for Blue is the Warmest Color, with Marianne Tardieu’s Qui vive.
