Speculation on City to City program

Is the appearance of Jia Zhangke's documentary on Shanghai – I Wish I Knew – any indication of the focus for the 2010 City to City program...?

The 2009 spotlight was on Tel Aviv, and the program's arrangements were subsidized by Israel (this revelation – and the absence of Arab/Palestinian film-makers – caused protests, and film cancellations, in 2009).

The Shanghai Expo was the most expensive world's fair in history — did China also budget a sponsorship for a "City to City: Shanghai" program, at the festival...?

The program announcement is expected Tuesday.

Pick the best of the fest!

I have also heard reliable information that Ankara, Turkey is the City in question.
