NEWSLETTER N° 364: May 14, 2008

Filmfestivals.com and CFC Media Lab, Telefilm Canada
in partnership with The Hollywood Reporter, Moving Pictures, Film & Festivals Magazine and Cineuropa.org are proud to present another installment of our
Future of Cinema Salon Series at the Cannes Film Festival
.

This year promises to be a stellar line up that includes MingleTalk at the Canadian Pavilion — an event that will be brokering conversations around the future of distribution amongst a varied group of maverick directors, rebellious producers and daredevil distributors. We will also be hosting in the Palais our annual Future of Cinema Blockbuster Panel that brings together nternational voices around the table, plus a special hands-on demo of some of the most innovative works coming out of Canada, including Late Fragment a critically-acclaimed dramatic interactive feature film which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Visit http://futureofcinema.fest21.com for more details and online registration here
Apologies for those of you which we will not be able to accomodate, we are almost "SOLD OUT" at this early stage.
Cannes is hot about the Future of Cinema!
