From the heart of Cannes!
Show Notes

Friend to the Loulabelle's podcast Ruby Boukabou chatted on the Loulabelle's FrancoFiles a few weeks ago to give me an idea of what to expect at the Cannes Film Festival but nothing could prepare me for the level of craziness I found when I finally got there! There is glitz and glamour but also just squillions of people! This chat is half way through the festival and includes Ruby's and my discussion about a couple of the films we saw:

The New Boy directed by Warwick Thornton, starring Cate Blanchett, Debra Mailman, Wayne Blair and newcomer Aswan Reid as the new boy. See the Cannes Couch clip for more here.

Jeanne du Barry directed by Maïwenn, also starring Maïwenn and Johnny Depp. For the Cannes Couch clip including our take on the press conference, click here.

The mammoth organisation of the festival is hugely impressive. Just the security alone is on a level we don't ordinarily see anywhere else. 

Moving into the second week of the festival we are looking forward to more celebrities, a day trip to Nice, some more films and the Palm Dog Award which is the award for the best dog actor in film for the year! Only in France!

Come and escape to the Cannes Film Festival with us!
