HUMPDAY IN THE FORTNIGHT AT CANNES!

by


Congrats to Seattle filmmaker Lynn Shelton and her crew who are off to Cannes. Her latest HUMPDAY screens in the prestigious Director’s Fortnight, whose inaugural year we’re celebrating in our 69 series.

Shelton shares the line-up with Francis Ford Coppola who notoriously turned down Cannes’ non-competition slot, but now his latest TETRO will open the program. According to the fortnight’s director Olivier Pere, “After Coppola announced that he wouldn’t show ‘Tetro’ out of competition, we asked to screen it for the Quinzaine. We loved it! And our enthusiasm convinced Coppola that an opening Fortnight slot would be the ideal place to debut his film.”

A few years back Seattle filmmaker Rob Devor’s ZOO also took a bow in the Fortnight.

Here’s a complete list of the this year’s Fortnight lineup.
