More than 20 years after his first film, Oskar Roehler and his Fassbinder biopic "Enfant terrible" with Oliver Masucci and Katja Riemann were included in the Sélection officielle des Festival de Cannes for the first time. "Enfant terrible" was produced by Bavaria Filmproduktion (producer: Markus Zimmer) in co-production with X Films Creative Pool (producers: Stefan Arndt, Uwe Schott), WDR, BR and Arte and was funded by Film- und Medienstiftung NRW, Deutscher Film Fund, FilmFernsehFonds Bayern and Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg. Markus Zimmer, producer Bavaria Filmproduktion: "There is hardly a greater honor for a German film than to be included in the official selection of the Cannes International Film Festival. Bavaria Filmproduktion is proud to present two German film icons there: Rainer Werner Fassbinder, whose work still influences the work of filmmakers all over the world, and Oskar Roehler, one of the most creative talents that German cinema has produced in recent years. 'Enfant Terrible'Kirsten Niehuus: "Even if we can not all be together at the Croisette, we are happy for the films selected by Cannes! Hopefully we can soon see the latest works of film art on the big screen to inspire the curators' enthusiasm share. "

Due to the corona pandemic, the regular Festival de Cannes on site at the Croisette had to be canceled. In order to show the flag and to strengthen the cinema, especially in France, the decision was made to take a Sélection officielle. The selected films receive a Cannes label and can therefore compete at the autumn festivals. A number of the films mentioned can be expected, especially in Toronto. Scattered films like "Benedetta" by Paul Verhoeven and "Annette" by Leos Carax have postponed their start dates to the end of 2021 so that they can run in Cannes next year.
