I must admit that this is a bit of a surprise; I wouldn't have expected Gimme The Loot to screen at the Cannes Film Festival, but it looks like it's most certainly going to.

We've covered the film on S&A; Vanessa and I saw it at the SXSW Film Festival in March, but neither of us felt strongly about it; she liked it more than I did. Feel free to read her review HERE if you missed it. And check out its trailer underneath as well, at the bottom of this post, if you haven't seen that.

It'll screen at Cannes in the Un Certain Regard section, along with these other 6 new official selections announced earlier today:
