Kristen Stewart’s Short Film ‘Come Swim’ Makes The Lineup For Cannes 2017
It’s good news for Kristen Stewart.
Her short film Come Swim will feature at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
Making her directing debut in 2016 with Water, Kristen is coming on leaps and bounds in the directing world.
Her latest project Come Swim is consequently starring at one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world.
This year marks the 70th anniversary for the festival, meaning it is set to be one of the best lineups yet.
Stewart, 27, is one of twelve female directors to feature at this year’s festival.
Organisers are upping the amount of women directors after nine were featured last year.
The festival’s director, Thierry Fremaux, and the president, Pierre Lescure, are announcing the lineup at a live reveal today.
The traditional press event takes place at the UGC Cinema on the Champs Elysees, Paris.
Other projects confirmed for the lineup so far include two episodes of TV series Twin Peaks.

Al Gore’s documentary film An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power is also part of this year’s list.
This year’s festival will also include four out-of-competition titles, three midnight screenings, one special screening and nine first films.
The likes of Nicole Kidman, Adam Sandler and Julianne Moore will walk the red carpet this spring, however there isn’t one Hollywood studio film in the lineup.
49 films from 12 different countries will screen at the 2017 festival which takes place May 17-28.
