Party at Pool Beach sous la pluie

user
Cannes may be a festival for film, but it's also a social festival: many people come to Cannes solely for the parties. "I've never been to a film at the festival," says Cannes veteran, who comes to the festival every year to attend some of the best parties and most exclusive clubs in the world. While most of these parties are expensive and very exclusive, there are some, especially during the day, that are more opened to the general public--at least to ...

ECU does Cannes

user
  So it seems that this year, destiny wanted to keep us (and your films) from getting to Cannes. Eyjafjallajokull, Iceland's unpronounceable volcano and its resulting  ash cloud, inclement weather, train strikes and general mayhem all round have conspired to make life difficult but nothing stops ÉCU from getting to Cannes! So it is with pleasure that I am able to announce that the European Independent Film Festival - Europe's foremost festival for independent filmmakers -will be at Cannes...

  By Sophie Nellis   The best place to go if you’re looking for atmosphere… In addition to the Gare du Nord and the Gare de l’Est, one of the key landmarks in the 10th arrondissement is the Canal St-Martin. Although the northern part of the canal has a slightly industrial feel to it, the southern part is very picturesque and it’s a great place to go if you fancy a leisurely stroll. The tree-lined quais are close...

DAY EIGHT The college where I am staying provided a simple breakfast of cereal, fruit, juice and tea. I caught the local bus to the Palais (the main venue of the festival and market).

I stopped at a few new booths and watched trailers of perspective movies for Cambodia. By 1pm I was hungry and ...
