Cannes 2024 Wrap: What We Saw, Liked, and Loved

From May 14-25, 2024, the center of our genre-film loving world moved to the south of France, where the Cannes Festival unveiled a broad and diverse selection of films from around the world.

Our own contributors Martin Tsai, Eric Ortiz Garcia, and Martin Kudlac attended the festival in person, while James Marsh, Mel Valentin, Ankit Jhunjhunwala, and Dustin Chang provided supplemental review coverage from officially-authorized off-site locations. Andrew Mack and Kurt Halfyard contributed news and a feature.

Now that the festival has concluded -- with the jury awarding various films presented in competition -- here's a recap of our Cannes 2024 coverage so far, listed alphabetically by (English) film title. More reviews will be forthcoming, and will be added as they are published.
