What can I say?

As his foremost celebrity Kirsten Dunst squirmed alongside him " he travelled: "I know Hitler...

Von Trier was previously banned from the festival after jokingly making a comment in 2011 during a press conference for his film "Melancholia' where he said he sympathized with Hitler".

"For a long time I thought I was a Jew and I was happy to be a Jew", he began. That didn't stop von Trier from wearing, at the Berlin premiere of his two-part sex epic Nymphomaniac, a cheeky T-shirt emblazoned with the Cannes logo and the words "Persona Non Grata".

This year's festival runs from May 8 to May 19.

Von Trier qualified that "I don't mean I'm in favor of World War II and I'm not against Jews, not even Susanne Bier" before digging himself deeper.

He later clarified his remarks and said that he "feel this obligation, which is completely stupid and very unprofessional, to kind of entertain the crowd a little bit". "If I had been, I would be nearly asleep at the press conference and would not have said those stupid things", he added.

The festival made no comment as they made the announcement simply sharing that "Festival President Pierre Lescure and his board of directors will welcome back the Danish director Lars von Trier, victor of the 2000 Palme d'or, to the Official Selection".

Three films were also added to the competition lineup, bringing the total to 21 films vying for this year's Palme d'Or: French director Yann Gonzalez's "Un couteau dans le coeur (Knife + Heart)" starring Vanessa Paradis; Kazakh filmmaker Sergey Dvortsevoy's "Ayka;" and Turkish director and 2014 Palmed'Or victor Nuri Bilge Ceylan's "Ahlat Agaci (The Wild Pear Tree)". His new title is "The Wild Pear Tree".

Earlier this week, the festival also revealed the composition of its main nine-member jury, which is being led this year by the actress Cate Blanchett.

Separately, the films chosen for the Directors' Fortnight section of the festival were announced, including "Climax" by Gaspar Noé and "Le Monde est à Toi" by Romain Gavras, son of the Greek-born director Costa-Gavras.
