Striving to be eclectic and receptive to all forms of cinematic expression, the Directors' Fortnight pays particular attention to the annual production of fiction features, short films and documentaries, to the emergence of independent fringe filmmaking, and even to contemporary popular genres, provided these films are the expression of an individual talent and an original directorial style.
The 49th edition will take place from 18 till 28 May 2017 in Cannes then in Marseille, Paris, Geneva, Rome, Milan, Florence and Brussels.
"Murnion and Milott treat the action as something between the harrowing footage of war correspondents and the visceral thrills of a violent video game."
25 Movies We Can't Wait to See at Sundance 2017
In the not-so-near future (or is it merely a few weeks after January 20th?), Texas has decided to secede from the Union. Factions want to claim New York as a conflict hub – which turns the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bushwick into a bullet-ridden combat zone. Brittany Snow and Guardians of the Galaxy's Dave Bautista have to negotiate a five-block parameter without sustaining bodily harm, a feat that was tough to do even before an all-out Civil War. This is easily the most genius "what if" premise of any movie at this year's fest. We just pray that it remains fictional.
We wrapped principal photography in 2015 and have started post production. Our post fx team has a lot to do. Many thanks to our amazing cast and crew. We'll continue to post pics. In this photo: directors Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott, Brittany Snow, Dave Bautista, and Angelic Zambrana
