1998

A rich program this year at Entrevues with a tribute to Michelangelo Antonioni (in his presence) and a retrospective dedicated to the director of fantastic and horror films David Cronenberg (in 12 films, from The Paradise Murders to Crash including Videodrome). But also the 30 years of the Fespaco, panafrican film festival, through out a film selection of 11 of the festival's Grand prix: Ceddo by Ousmane Sembene, La Citadelle by Mohamed Chouikh, or Buud Yam by Gaston Kaboré, etc. 

 

Among the international competition, the jury composed by Hervé Le Roux, Olivier Seguret, Rafi Pitts, Catherine Jacques and Edith Perrin awarded the Grand Prix for the Best French Feature film to Laurent Achard for his first feature film Plus qu'hier, moins que demain (for which he also won the Gérard Frot Coutaz award) and a Special Mention to Abderrahmane Sissako for La Vie sur terre.

Thierry Jousse received the Grand Prix for the Best Short film for his first directing Le Jour de Noel. The Grand Prix for the Best Documentary is given ex-aequo to the franco-albanian video artist Anri Sala for Intervista and Sophie Bredier and Myriam Aziza for their film Nos traces silencieuses. And Nicola Sornaga won the Audience Best Short film award for Un accent parfait.
