We got to go to the Screen Australia seminar at the Cannes Film Festival for all the Australians who had a short film at the festival. The best part was the people we got to meet there. People who were just like us, having worked on some things that got recognition, but now we were ready to take it to the next level, and we were at Cannes to say to the world, “HERE I AM!”
We got to meet Sean, a absolute ball of energy, who’s film “Nerds in Love” was so much fun and has done so well on the circuit, and his lovely girlfriend Gail. We also got to meet Olivia and Di, whose film, “Happy Melancholia” was one of the highlights of the festival. And then we also got to meet Nima, who had made this film:
Which I think it just amazing.
It’s funny the way us Aussies stick together.
