First Day at Cannes and our first screening at the market

It is day two of the Festival here in beautiful, glitzy Cannes.  We had our first showing at the Film Market yesterday, and were delighted to have representatives from several world film festivals attend. We will be following up with all of them to see if they might be interested in showing Three Stories of Galicia at their future events.

Our posters, pamphlets, and other information are out – we had quite a time hanging them and distributing them the first night when we got here after about 17 hours of airplane and train travel! But all is well now.

In the coming days we will be working on getting the attention of distributors and other film festival representatives. There are lots of possibilities and we have a few good leads that we’re working on. Stay tuned!

Cannes itself is amazing. We saw Russell Crowe, Kate Blanchett, Eva Longoria, and tons of European and Asian film stars yesterday, all looking fabulous. There are lots of people to talk to and our list of contacts to make and our list of meetings to have is long! Of course, we are looking forward to our party on the 15th, and for our second showing on the 20th.

Ridley Scott said in an interview before the festival that until one has seen men in shiny shorts, one hasn’t been to Cannes. We haven’t seen that yet, but won’t be surprised when we do. A Bientot! Talk to you soon!
