+ Nearly 400 Projects On Tap For 20th IFFM; Lineup Marked By A Handful of
Familiar Filmmakers

[CORRECTION: Last week, we incorrectly reported that Susan Skoog’s
“Whatever” and Christopher S. Cherot’s “Hav Plenty” screened at the 1997
IFFM. In fact, it was Karl T. Hirsch’s “Whatever” (now retitled,
“Green”) that screened at the market, and “Hav Plenty was withdrawn
prior to the IFFM. We apolgize for the error.]
