With only two weeks to go before the start of the 67th edition of this year's Cannes Film Festival (May 14-25), the event's artistic director today (April 30) has added six titles to the official selection, including an out-of-competition slot for veteran André Techiné's latest L'Homme Qu'on Aimait Trop (literally The Man Who Was Loved Too Much) with Catherine Deneuve and Guillaume Canet.

The other additions include White Dog (Fehér Isten) by Hungarian Kornél Mundruczó in Un Certain Regard, which traces the misadventures of a girl and her best friend, a canine, in a world of winners and losers.

There will be Special Screenings for Of Men and War (Des Hommes Et De La Guerre), a documentary by Laurent Bécue-Renard; The Owners by Kazakhstan film-maker Adilkhan Yerzhanov; Géronimo from France's Tony Gatlif, and starring Céline Salette and Rachid Yous; Blood Appears (El Ardor) by Pablo Fendrik in which Gael Garcia Bernal has the main role as well as serving on the Competition jury already announced. It is described as "an Amazon-set action adventure".

The main absence so far is the title of the closing film which will follow the prize ceremony on May 24.
