We Cannes Do It: the ICS at the 75th Cannes Film Festival

A week from now the 75th edition of the Festival de Cannes, the world’s best-known and most prestigious film festival, opens with Michel Hazanavicius’ Final Cut. In what we hopefully can call the first true post-pandemic edition the International Cinephile Society will be present again on the Croisette. And a Cannes festival would not be complete without our traditional ICS Critics & Industry grid. This year we will have 18 people grading each and every film they see, from the Competition down to the small ACID sidebar. These are our panellists this year:
