Chez Jim:

The 1996 Cannes Film Festival

Talk at the American Pavilion (Colloque au Pavillon Americain)

The American Pavilion is above all a meeting place, especially for Americans who'd rather not deal with being in France, but also for lots of other industry people. But a number of talks were held there, as well, several hosted by the Writer's Guild on screenwriting. That's Shane Black ("Lethal Weapon") explaining that trying to imitate the hits will get you nowhere.
