ABSTRACT
The article focuses on challenges facing U.S. film distributors heading to the 2006 Cannes film festival in France. In the U.S., the real winners in 2005 were at the art house. Despite studio specialty divisions and independent filmmakers like Lionsgate faring so well, U.S. distributors have been far more reluctant to embrace even the most compelling example or foreign cinema, the sort of auteurist fare that has long been the Festival de Cannes' stock in trade. In these uncertain times for foreign films in the North American market, distributors are relying on a combination of innovation and prudence to carry them through a difficult period.
