The Prophet to premiere at Cannes 2014

Participant Media and the Doha Film Institute’s animated adaption of Kahlil Gibran’s book “The Prophet” will premiere at Cannes 2014.

This animated feature film brings together many celebrated animators from around the globe, with each one capturing a chapter in “The Prophet” with their own signature style.


This star-studded animation with Salma Hayek and Roger Allers (“Lion King”) at the helm will pull off a long-awaited and much-eluded dream of bringing Gibran’s masterpiece to a feature screen for the first time.

From what we understand, it will not be in competition but will have its screening on the 17th of May.
