About program section: Competition for Palme D’or

Here is the list for Cannes In-Competition section. All these films… which one will win the golden Palm?!

While this year’s Cannes competition line-up singled out a few new countries (Ukraine and Chad are vying for the Palme d’Or for the first time), one nation is almost absent. Doug Liman’s Fair Game is the only American film in competition, whereas the US had two works in the main category last year, four in 2008, and five the year before that.  — France24

This is great! And why would one make such comment? It’s not like American films HAVE to be in the section. ;p   (by the way, there are 2 Korean films! Take that!)

and the juries are:

Tim Burton as the principal jury

alone with … Kate Beckinsale? I wonder how she’s in this.

Highly anticipating what selection they will make!
