Ruby & Loulabelle chatting on the Cannes Couch!
Show Notes

Ruby Boukabou has been on the Loulabelle's podcast a number of times and now she and I are headed to the wonderful Cannes Film Festival! Ruby has been attending as a journalist since 2009 and will lead me through my first experience of the Festival. This year Ruby and I will be sharing daily all the fun from the festival on our YouTube channel "The Cannes Couch". We'll be chatting on the couch with a cuppa and pastries in the morning or apero in the afternoon with loads of different Cannes personalities.

I asked Ruby what I can expect to see. There are loads of networking events, there are sales agents, distributors, producers, people buying films, people selling films... so much going on!

This year I am excited about an Australian film with Cate Blanchett, Debra Mailman and Wayne Blair directed by Warwick Thornton called The New Boy.  It's a story of an Aboriginal boy who turns up mysteriously at a convent in 1940s Australia and is in the category for Un Certain Regard.

I'm looking forward to seeing some of the areas around Cannes, with a possible day trip to Nice or a Provence village on the cards! The famous Cannes parties are also something to look forward to! 

With "press pass" in hand, who knows what exciting experiences are in front of us?!?! 

Follow along with us on our YouTube channel The Cannes Couch! Tune in to our chat to hear about all the fun of the festival!
