Malcolm McDowell has been confirmed for a Cannes masterclass at this year's festival.

The actor will give the talk on Friday, May 20 at a class moderated by Stanley Kubrick expert Michael Ciment.

Following the masterclass, there will be a premiere of Antoine de Gaudemar and Michel Ciment's Once Upon a Time... Clockwork Orange.

The previous day, McDowell will also attend the screening of a restored print of Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange to mark its 40th anniversary and upcoming Blu-ray release. Kubrick's collaborator Jan Harlan and widow Christiane will also be present at the screening.
