Cannes hit by Hawai sized monster waves : Croisette

Massive 18 foot waves hit the French coasts of Cote
d'Azur late on may 4th.

Cannes beaches where particularly hit but the promenade des
Anglais in Nice was the spot to be, that is if you are a kamikaze
surfer (like Brice de Nice) having waited since the last swell in
1959.

The constructions for the screen on the public Beach which
were underway have been swept away, the festival organizers announced
promptly that there should be no worries for the launch of the

The
Palace: Reviving A Historic Treasure

 

One of the main venues for the Connecticut Film
Festival, which opens tomorrow evening, is the Palace Theater on Main
Street in Danbury, a once prosperous town 50 miles north of New York
City. From the theater's simple facade and faded charm, it is hard to
imagine that this was one of the important theaters in the Northeast,
where headliners and musical legends once entertained Danbury's upper
crust. The historic theater, originally built in 1928 when Danbury was
a wealthy town, h...

 

Building
A Media Industry in Connecticut

   

Yes, the Connecticut Film Festival, which begins this

catalyst for building a sustainable and creative working environment
for film, video and visual artists who call Connecticut home. That
explains the Festival's ambitious plan to gather the men and women on
