The BFI’s Amanda Nevill has commented on the fact that Ken Loach’s The Angel’s Share will be in competition at the 65th Cannes Film Festival.

“I am so thrilled Ken Loach, one of our most distinguished filmmakers, has again secured a Cannes Competition place for his latest film, The Angels' Share,” said Nevill.

“I'm pleased that we were able to play a small part in the film with Lottery funding through the BFI's Film Fund, and I wish Ken and all those connected to the film the very best for its premiere in Cannes."

This will be the 11th time Loach has competed for the Palme d'Or.
