Time to dust off the old penguin costume for the 2014 Cannes Film festival. It's right around the corner and I have not yet found a room, even the airbnb host have outrageous inflated rates. Last year I drove my 2cV, a 1970s french classic, cross the country from Toulouse during a monsoon. I rattled into town soaking wet with a trunk load of champagne, parked outside La petite Majestic and shared the goods. The glam of cannes at its best, what a mess! In the end it was rather successful and ironically it turned into some PR stunt by accident. Maybe this year I will shamelessly plug wwwhaskellfilms.com on the car? My goal at Cannes is to meet up with one of my creative writing collaborators, Elena Toccafundi, and start garnishing interest on a new feature. Of course, I will try to catch as many films as I can. Look out for my 2cv or catch me at the American Pavilion for brunch and have a great festival!
