CANNES

The Cannes Film Festival opens tomorrow in of all places Cannes, France. This is where filmmakers show their work and hope to get distribution. The distributors use this festival to hear reviews, opinions and buzz on movies open for distribution. It can make or break a movie. Woody Allen opens the festival with a screening of MIDNIGHT IN PARIS. THE TREE OF LIFE will also get its first big screening for critics this week. It also gives us an idea of what movies could show up at Oscar time. Many of the critics who attend say that the schedule is brutal watching movies from 8am to 2am everyday, must be tough. I will keep you updated on the winners and losers to come out of Cannes.
