Before a fresh crop of Cannes films make their way to Australian screens, brush up on the competing filmmakers' best and most recent work so far.

With the Cannes Film Festival fast approaching, we're spotlighting past works by the filmmakers selected to screen in competition. Get up to speed with their most recent and best films to date.

To kick off our program we're screening the short works of Agathe Riedinger whose feature film debut Wild Diamond could crown her the discovery of the festival. Alongside Riedinger is another relative newcomer Payal Kapadia who will present her second feature at this year's festival. Their films will compete against festival regulars Andrea Arnold, Christophe Honoré, Ali Abbasi and Jacques Audiard.

Join us at ACMI Cinemas as we keep up with the competitors; prepare yourself for some truly remarkable films coming your way.
