MAIN Arrow to Arts & CultureArts & Culture Arrow to MoviesMovies Arrow to Cannes Film Festival 2017 Cannes Film Festival

ICannes Film Festivalncluded are the usual cheesy publicity stunts, French Riviera glamour -- and ultimately a serious promotion of film known the world over as Cannes.

This year, the official lineup was announced in April as the landmark 70th edition of the Cannes Film Festival kicks off on Wednesday, May 17, 2017. The two-week festival culminates in top prizes awarded during the finale, held this year on Sunday, May 28, 2017.

Notable films in the 2017 Cannes lineup include Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled,” starring Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst and Colin Farrell (a remake of the 1971 film that starred Clint Eastwood.)

Also in competition is “You Were Never Really Here,” starring Joaquin Phoenix as a war veteran who attempts to save a girl from a sex trafficking ring; Another top film vying for Palme d'Ore glory is “Good Time,” a comedy by the brothers Benny and Josh Safdie, starring Robert Pattinson and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Meanwhile, check out the full list of this year's Cannes lineup (see below) and keep it here for the leading contenders, and ultimate winners when they are announced in May.

In Competition: The Beguiled, directed by Sofia Coppola.

All about Cannes

Since the first festival was organized in 1946, the major Cannes Film Festival award has been the Palme d’Or or Golden Palm (known as the Grand Prix until 1955) for best film.

Other awards include best direction, best screenplay, best actor, best actress, the Grand Jury Prize, the Special Jury Prize, the Critics Award, and the Palme d’Or for Best Short Film.

Notable American entries that went on to receive top honors at Cannes have included Steven Soderbergh's Sex, Lies and Videotape (1989), the Coen brothers' Barton Fink, (1991) and Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction (1994).

More recently, the 2005 festival created a worldwide stir when incendiary director Michael Moore won the Palme d'Or for his documentary film Fahrenheit 9/11.
