Yet another move (the sixth in 24 years!) - this time to the Noga Hilton, built on the website of the old Palais Croisette. This is where screenings are still held today.
World premieres of: John Turturro's Mac, Tim Robbins' Bob Roberts, and Michael Haneke's Benny's Video.
The "Cinéma en France" section showcases seven features, including Christine Pascal's Le petit prince a dit (Louis Delluc Prize) and Jeanne Labrune's Sans un cri (Youth Prize), as well as eight shorts, among them Bruno Podalydès's Versailles rive gauche, (French César award for best short).
