Despite not being able to compete at Cannes this year, Netflix has not left 2019's film festival empty-handed. Over the weekend, the streaming giant announced that it has acquired the worldwide rights to two award-winners, Mati Diop's Atlantics and Jérémy Clapin’s I Lost My Body.

The Atlantics serves as Diop's feature directorial debut and tells the story of a 17-year-old girl who falls in love with a construction worker despite being promised to another man.  The picture debuted at Cannes and not only picked up the Grand Prix, but marked the first time a black woman competed for the coveted Palme d'Or in the festival's history. (The award went to Bong Joon-ho's horror, Parasite).

The second picture, Clapin's I Lost My Body, is an animation about an amputated hand trying to find its body in Paris. The movie was named the best film of the independent International Critics Week section. It also won the Nespresso Grand Prize.

Find teaser clips for both movies below. The exact release dates are still TBC.
