There are less en less young girls in pretty dresses standing outside of Palais des festival asking for an invitation. Of course because there are no premieres with glamorous stars anymore. Now there are men and women who hope to catch a last minute free ticket for a film.
Cannes is getting empty. Inside of the palace many companies or organizations are already gone. Other are busy packing or try to catch a last film too. Some others like me try to meet and speak to festival representatives or a distributor who happens to be still here. I approach them with care and respect, because I don't want to bother them if they are packing, but many of them make time the minute I show them the brochure of DIS. My business card is right now not representative as our brochure but they don't mind. Today I walk around, say goodbye to my new friends and use the last moments to ask a little more attention for our film. In my mind lessons I learn, inspirations I gather and the ideas I have running around like a firework. I wrote many things down, but still!
I am still overwelmd with the whole idea of the Cannes film festival and have to take time to make a place for all the information I saved in my head. It must be a sign that I have to be here at the Cannes 68st edition. I take that as a beautiful sign and keep it in my heart for more energy.
