  5. I’ll be very interested to see what films end up in the festival. African films have had a pretty great year already, with some great African films in Sundance, an Algerian film up for an Oscar, and the South African film White Wedding finally out on dvd.
    If you haven’t gotten a chance to see White Wedding yet I highly recommend it. It’s a very funny and optimistic film, and was even submitted to the Oscars a year ago. You should check out the trailer here:

  6. Thanks. Looks fun. If you know anyone involved in African movies, there is also a good festival in Brussels, Afrique Taille XL.

    Of course, we’re waiting for African movies to make a bigger impact at the Cannes festival itself. South Africa, Morocco and Egypt are often well represented. The French-speaking filmmakers gather around the Agence de la Francophonie pavilion.
