The Official Selection includes two Competition slots filled by Netflix films (Okja by Bong Joon-ho and The Meyrowitz Stories by Noah Baumbach, the latter stars Adam Sandler), nine first-time filmmakers and two TV series (David Lynch’s Twin Peaks and Jane Campion’s Top Of The Lake).

The festival’s opening film will be Arnaud Desplechin’s Ismael’s Ghosts. Kristen Stewart’s directorial short film Come Swim will also premiere at the festival as part of a special screening, along with the documentary Sea of Sorrow, which is directed by Vanessa Redgrave.
