All the daily film festival magazines.

This morning, everything went well. Best of all, I received tickets for the Cannes Classics screening of Jean Cocteau’s Beauty and the Beast and Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo.

I had a pretty productive day today! After my shift, I went down to the festival with Alicia and walked around taking photos. I stopped by the UK Pavilion and picked up some information. Then, I ate lunch with Sophia and Louisette.

Afterwards, Sophia and I explored the film market. We discovered Campus MovieFest, the perfect place to meet fellow young filmmakers. I plan on attending a screening next Wednesday, a showcase of all the student shorts.

After that, we went to the SAGIndie roundtable talk with American Pavilion mentor Linden Dalecki, who gave some interesting advice about screenplays and even graphic novels.

Later, we went to Le Majestic hotel and watched everyone stroll by in tuxedos and gowns. We even saw Zhang Ziyi!
