Indian stories at the 74th Cannes Film Festival, from July 6-17

Filmmakers, producers and sales agents are breathing a sigh of relief as the Cannes Film Festival returns in a physical format next month, to celebrate cinema and provide much-needed succour to a beleaguered film industry. In 2020, the coronavirus pandemic had forced organisers to cancel the event. This year, the influential festival in the French Riviera is back on and ready to roll out the red carpet to the world of cinema.

An exciting line-up of some of the finest filmmakers and emerging talents in the world awaits the 74th edition of the Cannes festival that will be held from July 6-17.

Indian cinema will be represented in the Cannes official selection by Invisible Demons, a gritty documentary on the air pollution in Delhi, directed by Delhi-born filmmaker Rahul Jain. The Directors' Fortnight, one of the two parallel selections of the Cannes festival, will screen A Night of Knowing Nothing, the debut feature by Film and Television Institute of India alumnus Payal Kapadia.
