Cannes Film Festival 2016
For the first time, Blueberry had a representative at the Cannes Film Festival this year, in the person of Maureen!
On top of enjoying some leisurely strolls under the Croisette’s sun, she watched the stellar cast of Xavier Dolan’s Grand Prix winning It’s Only the End of the World go up the red carpeted steps to the Palais for the film’s premiere gala.
Maureen mostly hung out in Le Marché du Film (the film market) where she met, among others, the Creative Mind Group who support new filmmakers in getting into the film industry as well as having their work platformed at the major international film festivals. A very driven and inspired bunch!
She also enjoyed her native French cuisine while on lunch with French producer/director Jonathan Musset, from Wayna Pitch, who is now also developing his film catalogue as a distributor, acquiring rights to distribute international films in France and Belgium.
The International Village was also a lot of fun with events in the American Pavilion, and meetings in the Argentinian Pavilion, to connect Ucine with potential exchange partners in London.
