I am at Cannes Film Festival to be part of
the Producers Network. To learn, make new contacts, pitch my new projects to the potential investors and find us co-producers.
Wish me luck!
It's time to say goodbye to the Festival the Cannes and Marché du Film. It was a wonderful journey; very educational, fruitful and fascinating. There are of course some people who come here, never leave their office or just go to the parties. The considerate it as a fun happening, specially when the boss pays the bills. But there are so much occasions and opportunities to learn from. These days were like a intensive study for me. I have learnd a lot. About film making, presenting films, and how to get to know the world by its filmmakers. It cost a bit to go to such a festival but I can tell you it worth every penny. So as soon as I get home, I begin saving for the next year like I did last year.
This year there were great Iranian filmmakers at the festival such as Asghar Farhadi and the talented actress Golshifteh Farahani. I didn't get a chance to meet Farhadi, my classmate from long time ago when I began filmmaking at the Society of Young Cineasts in Isfahan, because he arrived on the day that I left. But I could see Golshifteh twice. She played in the new film of Jim Jarmusch 'Paterson'. She was marvelous and did a great job.
Tomorrow I will put all my pictures in my last blog on Cannes. Here some pictures of Golshifteh Farahani.
