Enter The Void is directed by Gasper Noe who had a critical hit with Irreversible and features Olly Alexander in the leading role of Victor. Olly Alexander also plays Tom Keats alongside Thomas Brodie-Sangster as Samuel Brawne in Jane Campion's Bright Star about the life of John Keats.

The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus which features Paloma Faith, Montserrat Lombard and Mark Benton and Agora, featuring Rupert Evans, will screen out of competition at the festival, while Wit Licht (English Title: The Silent Army) featuring Thekla Reuten has been selected for a certain regard.
