French filmmaker Davy Chou’s short film 2099 is to screen during the 2014 Cannes Film Festival’s prestigious Directors’ Fortnight sidebar.
Chou is best know for his film about Cambodia’s golden age of filmmaking, Golden Slumbers.
The Directors’ Fortnight sidebar is an independent section held in parallel to the Cannes Film Festival to help critics and audiences discover new filmmakers and films.
In the past it has showcased the first films of Werner Herzog, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Nagisa Oshima, George Lucas, Martin Scorsese, Ken Loach, Jim Jarmusch, Michael Haneke, Chantal Akerman, Spike Lee and more.
This year’s sidebar will also feature films from the UK’s John Boorman and France’s Bruno Dumont.
