The Cannes Film Festival officially kicks off tonight! Yesterday we pointed out a few films in the Official Competition and Un Certain Regard. Today we conclude our previews by picking out some highlights from the rest of the official selection and the main two sidebars, Directors Fortnight and Critics Week. Enjoy the rosé (and the films)!

The Florida Project
Perhaps the most anticipated American film at the festival, Sean Baker's follow-up to Tangerine was not shot on an iPhone, so we can all stop talking about that (it was shot on 35mm). The film stars Willem Dafoe and a bunch of kids over one summer vacation.
