Paris - A documentary about the world's waste and a musical about an Australian aboriginal singing group are among seven films added to the lineup of the Cannes Film Festival.

Trashed, by British director Candida Brady, will have a special screening at the 16-27 May festival, while Australian director Wayne Blair's The Sapphires joins the midnight movies roster along with Franck Khalfoun's Franco-American horror remake Maniac.

Organisers added three films on Monday to the festival's Un Certain Regard sidebar - Djeca, by Aida Begic from Bosnia-Herzegovina; Renoir, by France's Gilles Bourdos; and Gimme the Loot, Adam Leon's film about Bronx graffiti artists.

The Cannes line-up also includes Final Cut, a montage film produced by Hungarian auteur Bela Tarr.
