CANNES '06: Line up Set for 38th Directors' Fortnight

By Brian Brooks | Indiewire May 3, 2006 at 6:49AM

Since 1969, the French Directors Guild has programmed a selection of films in Cannes from around the world, known as the Directors' Fortnight that is independent from the Cannes Official Selection. The line up includes both established new talent as well as filmmakers who are little known in the West. The 38th edition of the Directors Fortnight will take place May 18 - 28 and includes 22 features of which four are purely U.S. titles, including Julian Goldberger's 2006 Sundance Film Festival competition feature, "The Hawk is Dying." Eight films will screen in Directors' Fortnight's shorts line up with American director Carter Smith's Sundance '06-winner "Bugcrush" slated. Three films are designated "special screenings" this year, with director Gus Van Sant's 1985 film, "Mala noche" screening in the section.
