Kanye West will premiere a short art film titled Cruel Summer at the Cannes Film Festival next week.

The film, which is inspired by his G.O.O.D Music compilation 'Cruel Summer', will show on May 23 on Palm Beach in the south of France.

Created by Kanye West's design organization DONDA, the rapper promises, "a fusion of short film and art installation" and an "immersive seven-screen experience."

Back in January, Kanye tweeted an image of the project, which will remain open to the public for two days following its premiere.

Kanye has previously directed music videos for his music, including 2010's 'Runaway'.

The rapper, who has recently been working on Justin Bieber's new album 'Believe' is bound for the UK this week with Jay-Z for the start of their Watch The Throne UK. The duo will play five nights at London's O2 Arena starting Friday May 18. The duo also play Manchester's Evening News Arena on June 11 and 12, Birmingham's LG Arena on June 13 and 22 and Sheffield Motorpoint Arena on June 21.
