Cannes 2014 line-up: Official selection in full from Grace of Monaco to Lost River

The Cannes Film Festival is back for 2014 after kicking off its 12-day run with the premiere of Nicole Kidman's Grace of Monaco.

A selection of hand-picked films will be vying for the prestigious Palme d'Or, the award for Best Film that has been presented ever since the festival began in 1946.

Notable entries from this year's 'Official Selection' include Jean-Luc Godard's Goodbye to Language, magical-realist fantasy Lost River (Ryan Gosling's directorial debut) and true-life sports drama Foxcatcher.

Past Palme d’Or winners have included Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, the Coen brothers' Barton Fink and Michael Moore' controversial documentary Fahrenheit 9/11.

In order to qualify for the Palme d'Or, films must have been produced in the 12 months prior to the festival and not shown in any worldwide context, including online. They can then be considered for the  'Competition' section.
