simple and good!! Will it be at Cannes this year? Maybe Johnny showing up?
No, I think that Cannes is going on now, or may even be over by now. I think they were just looking for distributors at this point- I don't think the film is even done with post-production yet. That said, I can't wait to hear more about when/how it will be released!
Heard via twitter that Waiting for the Barbarians will premiere September 6th at Venice. Having done lots of research on this year's Venice I don't think we should plan for any win. There are too many Oscar chasers who now use Venice as a stepping stone. No longer the sort of event that it used to be.
