Twenty-six feature films. For its first selection at the directors ‘ Fortnight, Paolo Moretti, a defector of the Festival international du film de La Roche-sur-Yon, who has also worked for the Venice film Festival, has not skimped on the quantity. This number is well above the average of the previous editions. During the press conference which was held again this Tuesday, April 23, at the Forum des images, the new delegate-general indicated that on the set of feature-length films selected, sixteen, will see perpetrators land for the first time on the Croisette. “The Directors’ Fortnight also has this role to exist for new directors,” said Moretti.
