Cannes Classics, the festival's sidebar that screens new restorations of canonical films, has announced its lineup of twenty features films and three documentaries.

Among the films selected are French arthouse favorites such as Jean Cocteau's black-and-white "Beauty and the Beast" (1946), Alain Resnais' "Hiroshima Mon Amour" (1959) and Jacques Demy's "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg" (1964). It's like a film studies refresher course without the homework!

Plenty of American films will be featured as well, including Billy Wilder's late-career "Fedora" (1978) Joseph L. Mankiewicz's "Cleopatra" (1963) and Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" (1963), a new print of which just screened at the TCM Classic Film Festival. Cannes has chosen a perfectly creepy venue for "The Birds," which will screen on the beach as part of the festival's Cinema de la Plage sidebar. It was previously announced that Kim Novak will present a newly restored "Vertigo."

One of the most highly anticipated events will be a 3-D version of Bernardo Bertolucci's lavish epic "The Last Emperor," which won every Oscar it was nominated for including Best Picture in 1988. The conversion, supervised by cinematographer Vittorio Storaro, has been in talks since 2011. (Here's hoping "Last Tango in Paris" gets a "buttery" 3-D treatment, too.)

Two new cinephilic documentaries will also screen at Cannes Classics: Diego Galan's "Con la Pata Quebrada" and "A Story of Children and Film" by Mark Cousins, who directed the 15-part revisionist history of cinema, "The Story of Film: An Odyssey" (2011).

View the complete lineup below, and see clips of some of the Cannes Classics selections after the jump.
