I just got word that my new film, „Fahrenheit 911,“ has been selected by the Cannes Film Festival to premiere there in competition next month!
This is only the second time in the last 48 years that a documentary has been chosen to be in the main competition (the first being „Bowling for Columbine“ in 2002) — and, in fact, another documentary has also been chosen for this year.
The non-fiction film revolution rolls on!
I am deeply honored by this announcement, considering it comes from our mortal enemy, the French.
This year’s jury in Cannes is headed by Quentin Tarantino and also includes director Jerry Schatzberg, Kathleen Turner, Tilda Swinton and others.
„Fahrenheit 911“ will be in theaters across the U.S. (and the rest of the world) this summer. More info, gossip and all the juicy details to follow…
Thanks everyone for your support.
