Director Anurag Kashyap's "Kennedy" is headed to the 76th annual Cannes Film Festival, the organisers announced on Thursday.
The film will be showcased under the Midnight Screenings section of the prestigious film gala.
Film distributor Iris Knobloch and Thierry Fremaux, director of the Cannes Film Festival, made the announcement at a press conference at Cannes.
The Cannes Film Festival (Festival de Cannes) shared the update on its official Twitter page.
"KENNEDY by Anurag KASHYAP #SéanceDeMinuit / #MidnightScreenings #Cannes2023," the post read.
"Omar La Fraise" by Elias Belkeddar and "Acide" by Just Philippot are the other titles that will premiere in the Midnight Screenings section.
"Kennedy" is the only Indian film to be selected at Cannes this year.
The detective movie stars Rahul Bhat, who has previously worked with Kashyap in "Ugly" and "Dobaaraa", and Sunny Leone. It is produced by Kashyap and Kabir Ahuja of Good Bad Films.
Kashyap has been a regular presence at the Cannes Film Festival.
Previously, his multigenerational gangster cult classic "Gangs of Wasseypur" (2012) was screened at the 2012 Cannes Directors' Fortnight, an independent selection of the Cannes Film Festival.
Anthology film "Bombay Talkies", on which Kashyap served as one of the directors, premiered under Special Screenings at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.
Kashyap's thriller "Ugly" was screened in the Directors' Fortnight section at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, receiving a standing ovation, which he followed up with neo-noir thriller "Raman Raghav 2.0" which debuted at 2016 Cannes Film Festival in the Director's Fortnight section.
