Blog · Photos from the 65th Cannes Film Festival!
These are some photos I took while I had some down time in Cannes. I was out there for 8 days with my short film Requiem for Romance, and it was such a whirlwind of screenings, meetings, cocktails, parties, and events, that it was actually hard to find time to just be a tourist.
There were truck loads of cops hired for traffic duty. There were just massive amounts of people walking in the streets at all times of the day, that they had to close down sections of the main strip and redirect the cars.
On the right is the Palais, and on the left is the Riviera. The Riviera was where the market was going on. A lot of film distributors selling their newly completed films, looking for buyers. Many short films were also on display in the market.
The Quebec SODEC pavilion! This was my home base for the festival. They treated me like a star. Everyone was so gracious and helpful. Always asking me if I needed a coffee or something to drink, always taking the time to ask how my trip was progressing.
I met a producer from Digital Domain that day, and got invited to the evening party hosted by Digital Domain. These were some friends that I met out in Cannes, also fellow filmmakers with a short film in the Short Film Corner.
