The official selection for the 76th Cannes Film Festival was announced by the festival’s longtime director Thierry Frémaux on 13 April, at the UGC Normandie Theatre, Paris, alongside incoming festival president Iris Knobloch.

The news was confirmed by the official Twitter handle of the Cannes Film Festival (Festival de Cannes) on 13 April. "KENNEDY by Anurag KASHYAP #SeanceDeMinuit / #MidnightScreenings #Cannes2023," the tweet read.

Here, have a look:

This isn't the first time Kashyap's film is being screened at Cannes. Previously, in 2012, his wildly-popular gangster cult classic Gangs of Wasseypur was screened at the Cannes Directors' Fortnight, an independent selection of the Cannes Film Festival.

The director's other films that were premiered at the festival are Bombay Talkies, Ugly, and Raman Raghav 2.0.
