Cannes is mainly about who you know and who knows you!
There are many beautiful films at the Cannes Film Festival, but according to a French photo journalist, who covers The Cannes for her magazine every year for about 25 years, Cannes is mainly about who you know and who knows you! And that brings me to Natalie Portman: Would you, could you say NO to her?
There is not much discussion about her film. The conversation usually goes about what she has done before and what she is going to do in the future. I haven’t seen her movie yet, but I'm wondering if she's here because she is Natalie Portman, or because she has brought a beautiful film.
Back to the business. Today I take the holy book of Marche du Film Guide with me (it's so heavy!) to learn more about the participants of the Cannes. There are more than 80 Dutch companies/organisations present at the Cannes 2015. it is amazing. I don't even know some of them, but it is handy to learn more about them and let them to get to know me too while i'm here. I am secretly (not a secret any more!) proud of my place among them.
I am very tired today. An early night isn't it, but the sooner I sleep the better I perform tomorrow. But before sleeping I want to share with you the view that I enjoy every night while i'm waiting for the bus to go back to my room.
