Quinzaine 1986

Director's Fortnight

The number of screenings for each film is increased from three to four, with maximum seating increasing from 4,500 to 6,000 to accommodate "the most attentive, most generous audience I could hope to have" (Lizzie Borden, presenting Working Girl). The Palais Croisette still stands and the Fortnight opens with Denys Arcand's The Decline of the American Empire, which is a hit. She's Gotta Have it, Spike Lee's first feature, wins the Youth Prize.
