CANNES: The 49th edition of the Cannes Directors Fortnight has announced its official lineup of 19 feature films and 10 shorts.

Lithuanian master Sharunas Bartas scores a slot in the feature film lineup with Frost, a French/Ukranian/Lithuanian/Polish coproduction about a young Lithuanian man who wants to understand war in order to understand his people. He joins a convoy transporting humanitarian aid from Lithuania to the Ukraine and along the way he meets several journalists, who become fellow travellers.

Romanian talent lends a hand to the documentary Nothingwood by Sonia Kronlund with Romanian DoP Alexander Nanau lensing this French/German coproduction. Croatia is represented by the short film Tresnje / Cherries directed by Dubravka Turic.
