Although I'm excited to represent LOOP at the Cannes market, I have to admit, I have ulterior motives for attending the festival as well. Countless films will be celebrating their world premieres there and I plan to see a bunch of them! I try to save the big Hollywood production-type films for when I return to the states. I mean, the great thing about attending a festival like this is getting the opportunity to see foreign/independent films that might not even make it to the U.S. market... That doesn't mean that I'm not going to try to score a ticket to the red carpet premiere of "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull..."
I'm totally geeking out over the thought of sitting in the same theater with Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, Karen Allen, Shia LaBoeuf, and Cate Blanchet to see the premiere of the next Indiana Jones (the first of which being a film that really sparked my desire to make movies)! Scoring a ticket might be a bit difficult, but I already had one co-worker agree to bust me out of a French prison, so I will try everything I can to get in!
I also wouldn't say no to a ticket "Synchdoche," Charlie Kaufmann's directorial debut, "Che" by Steven Soderbergh, "Palermo Shooting," by Wim Wenders or even "Kung Fu Panda." Actually, I wouldn't say no to a ticket to just about anything. I'm hoping the technology works with me so that I can keep up-to-date on my blog.
