This year’s festival includes highlights like Pedro Almodóvar’s ‘Pain & Glory’, Sundance Grand Prize-winner ‘The Souvenir’, and Australian LGBTI films ‘Sequin in a Blue Room’ and ‘Suburban Wildlife’.
Director of trans drama ’52 Tuesdays’ Sophie Hyde returns with a new film, alongside international offerings like queer dramedy ‘Papi Chulo’ and the challenging, bizarre sci-fi ‘High Life’.
This year’s program features a bevy of LGBTI films, including the most centred on queer women in a single year in the festival’s history.
The sneak peak includes Disobedience, a drama starring Rachel McAdams and Rachel Weisz as two women who rekindle a youthful affair.
The program features 288 films (and counting) from 59 countries.
The line-up features massive films direct from Cannes premiering alongside independent Australian cinema.
