International directors gather for Globes panel

By By SANDY COHEN

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Golden Globe Awards are put on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — a group of journalists who cover movies for international publications — so it's fitting to pay special tribute to international filmmakers.

The HFPA did that Saturday at its 11th annual Foreign Language Film Symposium, which drew the directors of four of the five foreign-language films nominated at Sunday's Golden Globes.

Abdellatif Kechiche of France ("Blue is the Warmest Color"), Thomas Vinterberg of Denmark ("The Hunt"), Paolo Sorrentino of Italy ("The Great Beauty") and Oscar winner Asghar Farhadi of Iran ("The Past") discussed their work with each other and an audience of fans at Hollywood's Egyptian Theatre.

Japanese director Hayao Miyazaki, whose film "The Wind Rises" is also up for a Globe, wasn't able to attend.
