Woody Allen's Cafe Society to open Cannes Film Festival

2016-03-30 20:00

Paris — Woody Allen's latest film, Cafe Society, will open this year's Cannes Film Festival.

Programmers say the movie, starring Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg, will have its red-carpet premiere at the French Riviera festival on 11 May.

Blake Lively, Parker Posey and Steve Carrell also appear in the film, set in Hollywood in the 1930s.

Tuesday's announcement confirms Cannes' love affair with the 81-year-old American director. It's Allen's third film to open the festival, after Hollywood Ending in 2002 and Midnight in Paris in 2011.

Cafe Society is not in competition for the Palme D'Or and other prizes, to be awarded by a jury headed by Mad Max director George Miller.

The 69th Cannes Film Festival runs from 11 to 22 May.
