My Cannes Film Festival 2021: what an amazing experience!!
For the first time in my life, I have been able to spend the whole Cannes Film Festival as a professional in the best film market (marché, in French) of the whole wide world.
I am very grateful to Radio Kanal Barcelona for providing me with the needed documentation, the right CULTINCLUB program, and the professional support to make this happen.
It was a real bliss to be able to connect #live from the Radio France booth to the English Radio program The Club with Lucas, and also to do a CULTINCLUB CANNES SPECIAL.
The professional display of the festival has been remarkable at all times, and the #press service and professional area were always impeccabily run.
If you ask me, this year the market felt a bit lonely due to Covid restrictions, and many international professionals were not able to attend personally, but the beauty of #technology has allowed everyone to watch the red carpet, #photocalls, activities, and other events online, and via app.
However, this also gave me the option to sell #shortfilm RIDE at the Short Film Corner area of the market, with some #distribution agreements to be closed soon.
Chances need to be taken!
Another very cool activity was the beach cinema program, including both classic and new films for all audiences. Also a great experience at the beach front was watching the 14th of July beautiful and spectacular #fireworks
My days in Cannes were filled with amazing people who shared some of their time with me: young actress Maria Morera, young actor David Murgia, director of Sitges Film Festival foundation Mónica García , international representative of Catalan Films & TV Joan Ruiz, international actress and director Cristina Parovel, catalan actress Nora Navas , Unifrance Terrace press relations Ainhoa Jauregui , my lovely friend Cristina from Madrid en Corto , and many more dear friends who changed schedules, projects, meetings, screenings, and plans, just to be with me those days.
Also, great names of actresses like Tilda Swinton, actors like Timotheé Chalamet, directors like Oliver Stone, the jury led by Spike Lee, and surprising films like the winner Titane have given to this 2021 hybrid edition of the Cannes Film Festival the right #boost to be leading all the film festivals to come, such as Locarno, Venice, San Sebastián, etc.
As a result of all this fuzz, I #improved my French, delivered #professional reports, expanded my #network, watched amazing #films, ate the best french #food, and came back with a #soul filled with #love and emotion.
Merci a tous! Je vous adore!
