Age isn’t always at odds with radicalism
Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

The French film historian, theoretician, programmer and lecturer, Nicole Brenez, is chairing the New Directors Jury this year. As a specialist in avant-garde cinema, she acknowledges that new directors ought inevitably to be in the forefront of the avant-garde, but sometimes the most radical films come from veteran directors. “For example, the most avantgarde thing that I’ve seen so far this year has been the latest film by Jean-Luc Godard, who is 84 years old, but despite that he is still experimenting and using film to try out new things”

She also stresses that, “this is a Festival that has always done a great job organizing retrospectives, and has rediscovered the work of many directors. Apart from this new directors also have a specific section for disseminating their work. A festival, to be great, mustn’t just think about the present of cinema but also about its past and future”
