THE SELFISH GIANT WINS BEST EUROPEAN FILM AT CANNES DIRECTORS' FORTNIGHT


Clio Barnard's The Selfish Giant, which so impressed the critics when it screened at Cannes last week, has won Best European Film from the Europa Cinemas Label. The Europa Cinemas jury bestows this award to films at Venice, Berlin, Karlovy Vary and, now, Locarno film festivals as well as Cannes. The four jurors voted unanimously for Barnard's sophomore British film.
