Linklater Gets Two In Cannes

Linklater Gets Two In Cannes

Big congratulations to Austin’s own Richard Linklater who, it was announced today, will have not one but two features premiering at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Reminding everyone just how prolific he can be, his two 2006 releases Fast Food Nation and A Scanner Darkly will be part of the Competition and Un Certain Regard sections, respectively. This is great news, and very familiar, seeing as Rick had two features (Waking Life and Tape) at Sundance in 2001. You don’t need me to say it’s a huge deal to have one film at Cannes, let alone two!

Here’s a look at the exciting competition lineup, courtesy of indieWIRE (where you can find the full list of films):
