The number of screenings for each film is increased from three to four, with maximum seating increasing from 4,500 to 6,000 to accommodate “the most attentive, most generous audience I could hope to have” (Lizzie Borden, presenting Working Girl). The Palais Croisette still stands and the Fortnight opens with Denys Arcand’s The Decline of the American Empire, which is a hit. She’s Gotta Have it, Spike Lee’s first feature, wins the Youth Prize.
