Cannes Film Festival 2015: Amy Winehouse Documentary To Receive Premiere, Along With Cate Blanchett And Michael Fassbender Films

The schedule for the 2015 Cannes Film Festival has been revealed, and film fans have plenty to look forward to.

This year's event begins on 13 May, and plenty of Hollywood stars will be descending on the town in the South of France, to showcase their latest films.

This year, there’ll be all kinds of red carpet opportunities, but one of the hottest tickets of the week is set to be a special midnight screening of the upcoming Amy Winehouse documentary, which has been created by Asif Kapadia, who masterminded the ‘Senna’ film.

‘Amy’ is due in cinemas in July, but at Cannes, a selection of critics and industry bods will be given an early first look at the doc.

A new version of ‘Macbeth’, starring Michael Fassbender and French actress Marion Cotillard will also premiere at the prestigious event, along with Cate Blanchett’s latest movie ‘Carol’, which is an adaptation of a Patricia Highsmith novel.

Will Michael's Macbeth win rave reviews?

Last year’s festival gave us plenty to talk about, and British actor Timothy Spall won the biggest accolade of the week, when he was awarded with the highly-coveted Best Actor Palme D’Or prize for his role in ‘Mr Turner’.

Sadly, not every movie did quite so well, and Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut ‘Lost River’, and ‘Grace Of Monaco’ starring Nicole Kidman, both received scathing reviews from critics.
