And I don't think you'd work out who I'm talking about, Gavin. It's not
the obvious one. What bothers me is the length of these people's
careers. There are people who've never sold a film in their lives who
still get plum sales agent positions. People who make very public
predictions about industry direction who get things completely wrong
again and again yet land endless consultancies. One sign of hope is in
new team at Berlin who are exhibiting a lot more confidence in their
programming than their predecessors. New Cannes and Locarno teams are
still on probation after very conservative 2001 selections. Looks like
major change coming to Venice too.
