Three films co-financed by Wallimage at the Cannes Film Festival

  • 03.06.2021

This year, the Cannes Film Festival will exceptionally be held from July 6 to 17 and the different official selections were announced this morning in Paris by Pierre Lescure, President of the Festival and Thierry Frémaux, its general delegate.

The first excellent surprise of this presentation is the presence in the official section Un certain regard of the sublime A World produced by Dragon Film. This very intimate and delicate film was both written and directed by Laura Wandel, who follows Nora closely as she enters elementary school and is confronted with the harassment of her older brother Abel. The young Maya Vanderbeque, whose performance will make you hallucinate, interprets the role of Nora in this immersive dive at the level of a child.


For our greatest joy, Wallimage will be present twice in competition. We knew it for a few weeks, Annette by Leos Carax, co-produced here by Scope Picture and Wrong Men will open the first international cinema event of the post-covid era, but it’s official since yesterday Bergman Island by Mia Hansen-Løve, also brought to us by Scope, will also participate in the competition. This is the very first official selection for the French filmmaker.

These two films will be confronted with two authors that we have been following until now, but whose producers have unfortunately not been able to offer us their new films. Julia Decorneau (co-produced by Frakas in Belgium) will discover the official selection with Titanium after having struck the imagination with Grave while Joachim Lafosse will try to get a third Belgian Palme d’Or with Les Intranquilles (Sténola) where Leïla Bekhti and Damien Bonnard play a couple whose daily life is disrupted by the bipolarity of one of them. Congratulations to them!


The annexed selections for La Quinzaine des Réalisateurs and La Semaine de la Critique will be announced soon.
