CANNES ’08 | International Critics’ Week Line-up Announced

CANNES '08 | International Critics' Week Line-up Announced

The International Critics’ Week, a parallel section of the Cannes Film Festival, has dedicated itself to discovering new talents. Among the filmmakers whose first or second feature films were showcased during the program are Bernardo Bertolucci, Ken Loach, Wong Kar Wai and Francois Ozon. In the past few years, the program has received particular attention for winning 4 of last 5 Camera d’Or (which is awarded to best first feature film among all sections of Cannes). Last year, that winner was “Jellyfish” by Etgar Keret and Shira Geffen. The 47th line-up was announced Thursday, with 7 features and 7 shorts in competition, including the lone American entry, Jeff Vespa‘s short “Nosebleed.” Ronit Elkabetz and Shlomi Elkabetz‘s “Les Sept Jours” was announced as the opening feature film, while Rodrigo Pla‘s “Desierto Adentro” will close the week.
