user
Now even though I was scheduled to attend this event, I had a very important dinner meeting this night at a nearby SB Lebanese restaurant 'Zaytoon' (yum, great belly dancer, shisha and garden decor by the way) so I did not attend. But I was told later that Franco was '127 hours late' arriving after an Oscar rehearsal and red carpet interviews were nil as he ran in faster than the speed of light but here is a short recap of the James Franco award panel for 'Outstanding Performance' hosted...

user
Buzz is one of those things that makes a film festival a festival. I'm not talking here about the kind of buzz to be found at a late-night after-party or a pre-event happy hour, but the kind of buzz that's audible, that you hear while standing in line, that you can't help but hearing from pass-wearers strolling the sidewalks.
