Jim Jarmusch's latest work, the zombie film The Dead Don't Die, starring Tilda Swinton, Chloe Sevigny and Selena Gomez, opens tonight at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival.

This year, almost 1,800 entries were submitted to the competition, from which the creators selected twenty films for the most important section. This year's rally will be a festival of former Cannes winners and big comers.

Pedro Almodóvar of Spain, who was president of the jury in 2017, is competing for the Golden Palm with his film "Pain and Glory." The film is starring Antonio Banderas, a melancholic director.

Three years ago, with his film Just the End of the World, Xavier Dolan of Canada, who won the Grand Prix of the Jury, returns with Matthias and Maxime in French.

The Golden Palm Award-winning American Terrence Malick returns with Hidden Life. Marco Bellocchio of Italy competes with the Mafiao story of The Traitor.

A 24-minute directorial diploma film by Katalin Moldován, a Hungarian exam film, has been invited to the festival, the Cinéfondation program featuring the best of film universities. The work is based on Krisztina Tóth's short story titled "Master of Motion Picture" at the Budapest Metropolitan University, starring Vera Venczel and Ildikó Tóth.

The festival runs until May 25, and the official jury will be chaired by Alejandro González Inárritu, a five-time Mexican film director, and 83-year-old Alain Delont will be honored with the Honorary Golden Palm.
