Selector from Directors' Fortnight visits Australia

Frédéric Boyer, a member of the Selection Committee for Quinzaine des Réalisateurs (Directors' Fortnight), will be visiting Australia in February, to view new Australian feature films for possible selection.

Every year the Directors’ Fortnight, created by the SRF (French Directors Society) in 1969, programs a selection of films from around the world for screening during the Cannes Film Festival, 14 - 24 May 2009.

Directors’ Fortnight is about highlighting new talent in world cinema and the directors of tomorrow, plus supporting talented filmmakers whose work has not been shown in the major international festivals. Directors’ Fortnight runs alongside the Cannes Official Selection.

In recent years Australian films that have screened at Directors’ Fortnight include Jindabyne in 2006 and Wolf Creek in 2005.

Please see quinzaine-realisateurs.com to ascertain whether you are eligible for consideration.

Submission deadline is Monday 16 February 2009.

Filmmakers with eligible feature films should email Dale Fairbairn or call 02 811 5980 at Screen Australia.
