A Tommy Lee Jones western and a David Cronenberg expose on Hollywood are among the 18 films vying for the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival.

The festival organizers also said Thursday that two women directors and famed New Wave filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard will be in competition at the festival that runs May 14-25. The Belgian Dardenne brothers will be angling for their third Palme d'Or, as the top award is known.

Director Jane Campion, the only woman to win the Palme d'Or, is leading the festival's jury this year for the competition on the Riviera resort.

Organizers have already said the big-budget biopic "Grace of Monaco" by French director Olivier Dahan will hold its world premiere at the Cannes opening.
