Cannes Directors Fortnight Shakeup

Written by: FFT Webmaster | June 24th, 2011

Frederic Boyer, who has run the Directors Fortnight section of the Cannes Film Festival for the past few years, has not been reappointed as head of the prestigious program section. The Society of Film Directors, the  French directors association that has presented the sidebar for the past 30 years, is recruiting a new  Director General for the 2012 edition of the Directors’ Fortnight. Interviews are being conducted next month in Paris with an announcement expected to be made by late August at the Venice Film Festival.
