I left my heart in Cannes

Cannes is even more than what i expected it to be. A gigantic industry, a bee hive. So many things to do, from networking to watching movies to attending workshops…

The Short Film Corner is a platform where business and art merge together, and allows you to sharpen your business acumen and marketing skills in a very steep curve. You really have to put forward your differentiating factor in order to distinguish yourself and try to attract distributors, buyers or industry professionals that would be interested in distributing your current project or financing your next one.

It was for me an amazing opportunity, since it enabled me to meet so many great filmmakers from all around the globe, to promote my film among elite distributors, agencies and television chains, to pitch my ideas to producers there and to attend a wide range of master classes and conferences. One of the most interesting one in my opinion was the conference given by Apichatpong Weerasethakul, the winner of the Palme d’Or in 2010 for “Uncle Boonmee”.
