“The Sixth Sense Collector’s Edition,” “Captain Conan” and “The Paul Morrisey Collection” were selected for the second annual Cannes Film Festival DVD Awards for 2003.
Buena Vista Home Entertainment Intl.’s “The Sixth Sense” and StudioCanal Video’s “Captain Conan” from director Bertrand Tavernier tied for the award for creative DVD, and Carlotta Films’ “Paul Morrisey Collection” received the heritage DVD designation at the awards ceremony held at the Bunel Theater on Saturday.
Morrisey was on hand to accept the heritage nod for his four-disc set featuring three Andy Warhol movies he directed from 1968-1972, “Flesh,” “Trash” and “Heat” and a fourth disc loaded with hours of extras about the evolution of his entry into filmmaking with Warhol.
The winning titles were chosen from a group of 38 DVDs selected for this year’s Cannes Film Festival DVD Collection from more than 200 submitted.
Final judging took place during the fest by a committee headed by filmmaker Christian Vincent (“Sauve-Moi,” “La Separation,” “Beau Fixe”) and including Daily Variety home entertainment editor Scott Hettrick; and French journalists Sophie Wittmer (Home Cine DVD), Marc Toullec (Cine Live) and David Fakrikian (DVD Vision).
