  • 05/09/17--09:03: A Bit of Fun in Cannes
  • Hello from Cannes!

    Well where do I begin with this photo... I got to share some very special time here in Cannes with someone very close to my heart and as that time ended this bottle of wine came in handy. So let's just go with life gives us what we need when we need it. 

    Those of you who know me would find it hard to believe that I did drink this bottle and this great find is now a staple in my little flat.  I can't take all the credit for the find.

    Some days a girl just needs to take a minute. 

    More on Cannes coming

    Cheers

  • 05/09/17--09:21: The Posters are up in Cannes
  •  

    Good day from Cannes,

    I'm making up for some extra time I took for myself the last few days with a few extra blog entries today! 

    If it looks larger than life it is! The signs are up and this is where it will all take place.  More photos coming as tents already go up all around the building to support such an event!  It is about a 20 minute walk for me to get here and it is something I look forward to daily are the amazing walks but also seeing how this tiny town will transform to host this amazing event. 

    I purchased my official to add to my others its the same as what you see in the background.  I thought it best to buy now since soon it will be impossible to even get in the doors not to mention the lines.  There is a tour offered here by the office of tourism on the history of the 70 years of the festival I can't wait to do tomorrow!

    I figured the gelato is allowed when you walk daily its a reward.  I'm hoping that balances out after my 30 days if I say that everyday. 

    I am finding more and more as each day goes by to just take it all in and not miss a minute of what I'm able to see and feel here in the amazing journey. 

    Cheers from Cannes

    Robin

    Good day once again from Cannes!

    I can honestly say I have taken a bit of each day to realize how lucky I am to be here and to make it a point to really stop and smell the roses along the way! What a thought we never give ourselves time for in our day to day life to enjoy such a moment.   I hope this photo captures how happy I was that day. Each day gives different reasons that was a great day to embrace.  I hope its not to boring but there might be more as I stop and enjoy the moment of a single day.

    So whatever you do today make it a happy one in some small way!

    Cheers from Cannes

  • 05/09/17--09:48: Downtown in Old Cannes
  • Hello from Cannes!

    Do I look happy to be here?  I sure hope so! I was very happy here it was a great day!   I was told to pose so I wanted to show I was feeling fabulous and once again enjoying the moment I was in and what I was sharing.  I probably enjoy my days here more than most I'm guessing I didn't see anyone else doing such poses! Lucky me that's how I see it!  The narrow streets are lined with sweet treats meant to be shared so you can enjoy and not feel so guilty about it all.  The tiny stores line the streets with much to see. In a few weeks these tiny streets will be very hard to walk down with all the fine folks arriving.

    I choose to embrace every bit of it even if I look silly doing it!

    Cheers from Cannes

    Hello from Cannes!

    Hopefully this stunning view comes across as great as it is intended to.  The walk up the hill to get it was the best way to see it in all its glory!  Have you ever stopped long enough to see the amazing color blue when its  being seen from the sky and the water at the same time... it seemed majestic to me, once again today I found myself enjoying all this lovely area has to offer and see the blue in everything there is here to cherish and remember its beauty.

    I hope you enjoy this the same way I do.

    Cheers from Cannes

    Hello from Cannes,

    A bit of History of this amazing place!

    Le Suquet sits at the top of the hill overlooking what is now Cannes, but this was the original site of the town. It started out as a Roman camp and several buildings were added over the centuries. It overlooks one of the most famous walkways in the world (La Croisette,) In the 12th century, monks built a castle on top of the hill, now known as Musée de la Castre. Today the medieval fortress houses an art collection that was donated by Baron Lycklama in 1877.  The chapel of Saint Anne has a stunning view of the city and across the Bay of Cannes.

    Cheers from Cannes,

    Robin

    International event at the end of April fulfilled its mission and brought big names of cinematography and students from all around the world to Bratislava. Masterclasses, screenings and discussions were balanced by friendly atmosphere.

    Five-day event started with the screening of cult film The Neverending Story. Spectators travelled back to their childhood by watching this classic on the big screen in the presence of Colin Arthur, father of the phenomenal creatures.
    Not only he mentioned the process, he also showed real size models of creatures from the movie set like Stonebiter, Racer Snail and head of the Irish setter which – along with the real-life one that once belonged to Arthur – was an inspiration for the character of Falkor the Luckdragon. 

    csm_zaver__7__4dbbe43242.jpg

    Second day was led by the production designer Ludovica Ferrario who revealed behind the scenes and process of constructing fictional film world. She disclosed how she managed to build the replica of Sistine chapel or fill the square of St. Marco with water. She emphasized that script is like a recipe for audio-visual piece and later that day producer Tomáš Hrubý and scriptwriter Štepán Hulík picked up on that. They motivated participants with the stories of the beginnings of their careers and funny anecdotes from the movie sets of Wasteland and Burning Bush. 

    csm_zaver__13__26df8cdd10.jpg

    On the third day of VFF Colin Arthur talked enthusiastically about his 50 year long career in SFX and make-up field. He mentioned various methods he used to create his spectacular effects, how to make a fake blood or how did he got away from working on wax figurines at the museum of Madame Tussauds to film set of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: Space Odyssey. He assured that despite he had created special effects without CGI he also believes it’s just another tool that provides even more possibilities in his field. At the end of his masterclass was acknowledged the old truth: Behind every great man there's a great woman. He and his wife Sarah Jeanne Arthur talked about their long relationship. Afterwards there was an exclusive pre-premiere screening of Menandros & Thaïs which led to brisk discussion with the producer Anna Tydlitátová and editor Zuzana Walter. They explained how they promoted their experimental and low-budget blockbuster.  

    csm_zaver__11__e88fbb2d23.jpg

    Friday morning masterclass was led by the executive producer of HBO Steve Mathews. He talked about the work of scriptwriters and the role of film channel in the European TV market. Despite the fact that the American production is much more unified, scripts on the old continent need to be adapted to cultural contexts of specific European countries so that they can be fully appreciated by different groups of viewers and they also have to feel relevant in the present moment. Then the Austrian filmmaker Anja Salomonovitz presented her documentaries with strong political and social messages.                    
    Event finished with British director Peter Strickland and his debut film Katalin Varga which got a Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival. Strickland also complained about the work of a freelance director being very hard because he never knows if he will have enough money for future projects, yet he encouraged students that if they follow their dreams despite the fear of failing, they will be eventually satisfied. 

    csm_zaver__3__0c92033072.jpg

    Networking and educational platform was fulfilled by the school encounters. Surprisingly friendly confrontations of film schools from around the world showed the different conditions in which are the films being made. Various teams exchanged their experience to improve and learn from each other.  
    Visegrad Film Forum is known for its great accompanying events. These took place at the various venues of Bratislava trying to represent its diverse nightlife. Overcrowded clubs were a proof that this exceptional city on the river Danube offers a lot, not only for the locals but also the foreigners.

    21/29 April 2017 – Udine – Teatro Nuovo and Visionario

     

    FAR EAST FILM FESTIVAL 19

     

     

    Japanese triumph: the film with most votes from the public and Black Dragon pass holders is Close-Knit, by Ogigami Naoko! 

    And in second and third place, Korea with

    Choi Kook-hee's Split and Chang's Canola.

     

    #FEFF19 closes with 60,000 attendees from over 40 nations.

     

     The audience of the Far East Film Festival– who, since April 1999, have been the only judges of the films in  competition (71, this year, out of the 83 in the vast programme) – gave the prize to the sweet, surreal Close-Knit by OgigamiNaoko, director of (beloved) little cult gem Rent-a-neko. And so, by popular demand, Japan takes home the Golden Mulbery 2017. On the second and third steps of the podium, though, are South Korea with sports drama Split by Choi Kook-hee and the touching melodrama Canola by Chang. And while Close-Knit also won the "quality award" of the Black Dragon pass holders, the MYmovies web-judges chose Mad World by Wong Chung, featuring a memorable performance from Hong Kong legend Eric Tsang (Golden Mulberry for Lifetime Achievement 2017, let's not forget, along with Feng Xiaogagang).

     

    After nine days of showings, talks, meeting and panels– and without forgetting the brightly-coloured initiatives in the city centre - it is therefore time to take stock of this nineteenth chapter. An edition that, despite being the largest ever, has certainly not lost any of its unmistakable pop style, both in its now-famous laid-back atmosphere and in the various Asian zones in Udine (the“Giovanni da Udine” Teatro Nuovo, the Visionario and the city centre, dotted once again with the 100 Far East Events).

     

    Nine days which the audience has continually shared with actors, divas, superstars, directors and cinema professionals of all kinds, as well as with the 10 young talents of the FEFF Campus, the journalism school led by Mathew Scott, the producers of the international Ties That Bind workshop (in its ninth Italian session) and the key players who converged on the FEFF from all over the world for the second edition of Focus Asia.

     

    If, as per well-established tradition, the weather chose once again not to be generous, #FEFF19 has confirmed the fantastic results of the 2016 edition. Let's let the numbers speak for themselves: 60,000 attendees, 140 Asian guests, 1,200 pass holders (journalists, critics, film-makers, experts, cinema professionals and film-lovers, not only from Asia), 120 thousand euros of takings (including tickets and passes). Visitors - including the Focus Asia professionals - from more than 40 countries, including Austria, Spain, Germany, England, Japan, the United States, Hungary, Slovakia, Switzerland, Croatia, the Netherlands, Sweden, South Korea, Belgium, Norway, Romania, Slovenia (students and teachers from the University of Ljubljana in particular) and Brazil.

     

    More a "Festival of Cinema" than just a straightforward “Festival”, over time, the FEFF has become a genuine "Island of cinema": a place where movies are shown, discussed and dreamed up (two projects presented at Focus Asia, the FEFF's new genre film market, have already found financial backing). Popular, instantly recognizable films which are easily cataloged (by genre and origin) in a way that allows the organizers to structure the programme like an on-demand platform and the viewers to make their own decisions.

     

    Having grown and grown up alongside the FEFF, edition after edition, the public (or more precisely, the wonderful tribe of Fareasteners) knows exactly what it wants from Asian showbiz and what it wants from the festival. "The FEFF is so exciting,” say Sabrina Baracetti and Thomas Bertacche, President and Festival Coordinator, “because there is no distance between the people who organize it, the guests and the public. Local and international. Everyone is committed to making the people around them feel at home. It's a great moment of civility." And so the only thing left to do is make a date in Udine for the 20th edition, from the 20th to the 28th of April 2017!

    • Green Film Fest 2017 brings World Premiere of Twelve Pianos to Castro Theatre.
    • Awards announced at Closing Night with Tidewater winning the Green Fire Award and Yasuni Man receiving the Green Film Fest Audience Award.
    • Green Film Fest is the first film festival in the USA to implement the F-rating system to promote women in the film industry.

     

    Thursday, April 27, San Francisco: San Francisco’s Green Film Fest 2017 ended on a musical note April 26 with the Closing Night World Premiere of Twelve Pianos, after hosting a week of the latest environmental films, expert panels, and discussions in theaters across the city.

    The festival screened 71 films about major environmental issues facing the world today, from climate change to food waste, and in regions ranging from North Atlantic islands to the peaks of Bolivian mountains. Films were accompanied by panels and discussions featuring more than 90 filmmakers and guest speakers. With events held in the Castro Theatre, Roxie, 518 Valencia, Koret Auditorium at SF Public Library, David Brower Center, and newly added venue Bayview Opera House.

    Awards Announced at Festival Closing Night

    Tidewater won the newly added Green Fire Award that recognizes the best environmental feature made in the Bay Area and includes a $5,000 cash prize.  From Bay Area producer/co-writer Nate Birnbaum and director Roger Sorkin, Tidewater follows a community in Virginia, USA, coming together in the face of rising sea levels. The film frames the increase in flooding as both a national security issue and grave economic threat, showing how it affects everyone; from the urban poor to religious clergy to the military. The Green Fire Award jury was impressed by the film’s potential to spark environmental discussion and action across the country.

    Yasuni Man received the Audience Award, voted by film viewers at festival screenings. In Yasuni Man, filmmaker Ryan Killackey takes us on an incredible expedition – a 1,500 kilometer journey along 7 rivers – through this Ecuadorian reserve, sharing the story of the conflict in Yasuni that has pitted biodiversity and human rights against oil and commercialization.

    Green Film Fest Highlights

    Green Film Fest was the first festival in the USA to implement the F-rating system. The new rating is designed to support and promote women and redress the imbalance in the film industry. Nine festival feature films received the rating, which is given to films that are directed by, written by, or are significantly about women. The films Cheshire Ohio, Dark Circle, and RISE: Standing Rock received triple-F-ratings. More information.

    This year’s theme What’s on Your Plate? asked viewers to explore the origins and impact of their food. Films catering to this question included the Opening Night World Premiere of Evolution of Organic directed by Mark Kitchell.

    Closing Night of the festival hosted live piano performances on-the-red-carpet at the Castro Theatre. Pianists from the film, including Mauro ffortissimo, performed before the World Premiere of Twelve Pianos directed by Dean Mermell. The film follows musician Mauro ffortissimo and a cast of Bay Area musicians creating piano installations in local nature parks.

    "They were forced beyond breaking point; they have no regrets, does that make them bad people? The first part of this film will enrage you ! The second part will sate you !". Bruno Chatelin - Filmfestivals.com

This peaceful couple quickly become the target of a crual gang of street kids, who terrorise the village.

    An e-generation permanently plugged into their devices, devoid of empathy, a new breed of technological psychopath…Pushed beyond breaking point, can Bernard live up to his father’s legend, as the situation explodes into a brutal war of generations ?

    Hello from Cannes,

    Even when you're in such a fabulous place having a once in a lifetime experience that some sadness can find its way in and when it did my best friend of 25 years arrives to enjoy this amazing experience and those smiles return.  I knew my friend was indeed here for the same reasons I was when she instantly stopped to smell the flowers upon arrival just as I had done when I arrived!

     I found that was the beginning of what we would both look back on years from now and be forever grateful that we took the time to enjoy each other and the places we would get to see and we'd cherish every minute here together. 

    Our first few photos of Nice as we walked 8 miles and well into the night we eat our way through Nice and stopped to just see and be in the moment.  I hope you enjoy today's post as much as we did. Our other stops will be San Tropez,Paris and other great places yet to discover before the festival begins.

    Cheers from Cannes

  • Hello From Cannes!

    As I walked along the beach for my 7 mile walking days which I've come to find is my new simple pleasures seeing this great retro spinner sign of Old Cannes  then  found my way to the Port Of Cannes and the thought of this retro sign reminds me just how long the world famous festival has been going on 70 years.

    I saw so many fun finds on this beautiful walk along the other side of the ocean!  As I stumbled across this fun little reminder a of a very familiar cult classic I found a way to show myself and all of you what I look like today!  I had no idea I looked so fabulous at 55!

    As another day passes,

    Cheers from Cannes
