With the Cannes Film Festival lineup now out of the bag, it's time for the sidebars to do their thing, and Cannes Critics' Week has kicked things off today by unveiling their slate of films. The sidebar tends to focus on less established names, but on cinematic voices that could make an impact in years to come. So even if you don't know these filmmakers yet, chances are you soon will.

With the Cannes Film Festival lineup now out of the bag, it's time for the sidebars to do their thing, and Cannes Critics' Week has kicked things off today by unveiling their slate of films. The sidebar tends to focus on less established names, but on cinematic voices that could make an impact in years to come. So even if you don't know these filmmakers yet, chances are you soon will.

But that's not say there won't be any stars. Mélanie Laurent's sophomore directorial feature "Breathe" will play Out Of Competition at the Critics' Week. Based on the novel by Anne-Sophie Brasme, Laurent co-wrote the film with Julien Lambroschini that stars Lou de Laâgeand and Joséphine Japy as two teenage girls whose abusive friendship turns deadly.
