Cannes reveals Director’s Fortnight program


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The Director’s Fortnight sidebar at the annual Cannes Film Festival usually offers a strong counterpart of experimental fare, and this year appears to be no different.

Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon and Bruno Romy are just a few of the international talents picked to fill the 25-film selection, with Romy’s “The Fairy” opening the sidebar and Bouli Lanners’ “The Giants” closing the program.

The sidebar’s artistic director Frederic Boyer announced the eclectic lineup Tuesday in Paris.

“We’re starting off with a short film and ending with a short film – I don’t want to tire out the Cannes spectators, especially at the end of the festival,” Boyer said.

The Directors Fortnight sidebar runs May 12–22 in Cannes.
