After revealing its competition lineup on April 17, Cannes has now unveiled its Directors' Fortnight program for the 67th edition of the fest. 

Notably, two films that bowed at Sundance have made the cut, Damien Chazelle's "Whiplash," starring Miles Teller as a talented young drummer driven mad by his relentless and cruel teacher, J.K. Simmons; and Jim Mickle's Southern thriller, "Cold in July," starring Michael C. Hall. (A trailer for the latter recently dropped; watch it here.)

Bruno Dumont's procedural "Li'l Quinquin" is part of the lineup, as is John Boorman's latest (his first feature in eight years), "Queen and Country," and a new Frederick Wiseman doc "The National Gallery."
