If you feel like reading the press release go here.

On other news, the 6th edition of the Cinéfondation Atelier was considered again a success with 400 meetings -with 110 companies- for projects of the 15 directors participating this year a significant increase from last year’s 300 meetings with 80 companies. Cinéfondation’s Director Georges Goldenstern comments that there wasn’t any “recession effect” as more companies were interested in the section efforts to promote the –always- 15 lucky directors. The Arte award this year went to two directors each earning the full award, Massoud Bakhshi for Khorramshahr and Srdan Golubic for Circles. To announcement/interview go here.

So this is it for this year and hope to see you again in 2011.
