Cannes Film Festival adds “Carlos” to the Out of Competition category

The Cannes Film Festival is one of the biggest festivals in the world and draws talented filmmakers from across the Earth to unite for a 11 days of film screenings. Last week we posted the official 2010 lineup with more releases expected to be announced in the following weeks up the festival.

Today, the Festival de Cannes has announced the selection of the film “Carlos”, by French film director Olivier Assayas, which will be presented Out of Competition. IMDB lists the film’s synopsis as “The story of Venezuelan revolutionary, Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, who founded a worldwide terrorist organization and raided the OPEC headquarters in 1975 before being caught by the French police.”

As for the film “5XFavela”, by Brazilian Carlos Diegues, it will be presented in the Special Screening.

The Official Selection will conclude by the end of the week.
