"Wainting for the Thaw" selected in Cannes

First Cannes selection for Wallonia Brussels, Waiting for the Thaw, a school short film by Sarah Hirtt will be presented at the Cinéfondation.

The Cinéfondation Selection selected 18 films (14 fiction films and 4 animated films) among the 1,550 submitted this year from 277 schools from all around the world

"By focusing on the quality of work submitted by lesser-known institutions, the Selection is a true reflection of the diversity of film schools."

The three Cinéfondation Prizes will be awarded at a ceremony prior to the screening of the winning films on Friday 24th May in the Buñuel Theatre.

Waiting for the Thaw is on the latest WBImages Short Film compilation DVD edited last February for Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival.
