CANNES 1998 – THE FESTIVAL FILMS

What would we do without a Cannes Film festival, the altar of cinema as art; it is a fantastic focal point for the world’s filmmakers, each year selecting films (not exhaustively, but in fine French fashion, idiosyncratically) that have that certain je ne sais quoi…. This year the selection includes two Australian feature films: Rolf de Heer’s Dance Me to My Song in Competition, and Ana Kokkinos’ Head On, in Director's Fortnight, where the director’s personal style is the thing.
