Pedro Almodovar and Quentin Tarantino will be among the directors contending for the Palme d’Or award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
Almodovar’s “Broken Embraces,” with Penelope Cruz will be in competition for the top prize. So will Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds,” starring Brad Pitt, the organizers said at a news conference in Paris.
The festival will take place from May 13 to 24 in the coastal resort in the south of France.
