With the screening of the closing film (eco-doc Ice And The Sky), Cannes 2015 has officially come to an end. It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, with long-standing masters of the form delivering substandard work and first timers causing gasps that can be heard all the way down the Croisette.
With twenty films In Competition, only a couple less in Un Certain Regard, various high profile Out of Competition films and a seemingly infinite number in the market, there’s of lot of movies to get through to find the cream of the crop. When dozens of films can come with the “Cannes Official Selection” mark on the poster, it’s hard to know what’s actually worth checking out and what coasted its way into the Grand Theatre Lumiere.
Well, we’re here to help. Here are the ten best films screened at Cannes this year, both in and out of competition. Most have managed to secure distributors, although few are yet to get confirmed release dates, so keep an eye out for that sort of information in the near future.
