AFF_CANNES_22X30.inddCannes is a sort of annual cinematic Olympics, with almost every country vying for spots in the official selection. But with the official 2013 Cannes Film Festival announcement a little over a month away, Indiewire is offering its annual Cannes wish list.

Indiewire’s annual Cannes wish list isn’t so much about officially predicting the lineup, but rather a roster of films we hope are finished in time, good enough and invited to the festival. Thus we’re not including films basically confirmed not to be heading to Cannes — like Lars von Trier’s “The Nymphomaniac,” Xavier Dolan’s “Tom at the Farm” and Pedro Almodovar’s “I Am Excited.” Or the one film we officially know — Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby,” which will open the festival.
Among the candidates are celebrated filmmakers like Woody Allen, Catherine Breillat, Joel & Ethan Coen, Sofia Coppola, Claire Denis, Atom Egoyan, James Grey, Jim Jarmusch, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Terrence Malick, Steve McQueen, Roman Polanski and Steven Soderbergh (for a TV movie!), among many others.
Films that don’t get a spot in Cannes (and there will definitely be a few) will immediately become hot topics for a fall fest berth in Venice and/or Toronto. Either way, let the guessing games begin:

“Gravity”
Director: Alfonso Cuarón
Certainly one of the most anticipated films of the year, Alfonso Cuarón’s $80 million-budgeted 3D space film “Gravity” would be a huge catch for Cannes and high atop the to see list of everyone attending. Starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as surviving astronauts in a damaged space station, the film’s October release date is much more suggestive of Venice and/or Toronto — but this is a wish list.
