Cannes 2016 Wrap Report by Madelyn Most

  Cannes 2016 Report  by Madelyn Most    Any mention of the word Cannes immediately brings up images of ‘stars’ and almost-anorexic mannequins adorned in provocative haute-couture posing before photographers on the brilliant red carpet of the Festival’s Palais, (often trailed by tuxedoed escorts), but in fact, the Cannes Film Festival is much more than that.   Besides the over abundance of screenings and press conferences, i...

CANNES 2016 -- WRAP and Parting Shots Long detours around movable barriers.

Cannes 2016, WRAPUP and Parting Shots       By Alex Deleon <film festivals.com> This was the year of police barricades on the Croisette, armed patrols on Rue d'Antibes, and body checks at Palais entrances, presumably to assure the crowds that they were safe from Terrorist attacks. Most festival visitors took these precautions in stride although it often entailed long tedious detours to get to important screenings or other events.  Other than th...

Cannes 2016: Films we hope to catch Later : LESLIE HOWARD The Man who gave a damn.

Alex Deleon <filmfestivals.com> There are so many films on view at Cannes in dozens of  screening rooms on the main festival grounds and scattered about town -- in the Marché du Cinéma film market as well as the official selection -- and so much to do beside film watching -- that it is simply impossible to see all the films, or even half of the films, one would rush out to see under normal circumstances. Cannes is not normal. Cannes is the ultimate embodiment of the ...

TREZOROS The Martyrdom of the Spanish Jews of Greece - A precious WWII Document

Again by accident on night number two I came across my second Market documentary discovery,  "Treasures" (Trezoros in  Ladino) of all places in the lobby of the Majestic Hotel which is directly in front of the Grand Palais, loaded with Festival VIPs, and is a late evening hot spot for film confabs over expensive drinks. Floating through the buzzing scene around midnight i was spotted and cornered by croatian director Arsen Ostojić whose  2012 Yugoslavian postwar trag...

Cannes: Documentaries in Focus A triple play from Greece, Japan and India

Alex Deleon <film festivals.com> The final Cannes competition film on closing night Sunday May 22 was the latest offering from the best known Iranian director, Asghar Farhadi, whose tense family drama, "A Separation" won the foreign language Academy Award in 2014.
