The Cannes International Film Festival. Arguably the most prestigious and publicised film festival in the world. Every year we drool over A-list movie stars glide down the red carpet as we come together to celebrate and showcase the world of European Film.
But before the glamour sparked into action en France, we in London held an intimate invite-only Pre-Cannes Film Festival event at the very swanky No.5 Cavendish Square. It was a chance for up and coming actors, movie makers and French shmoozers to get together and do what they do best. Network. The event even managed to screen some award winning short films including 'Unspoken' by Oakmanfilm
***Awarded best LGBT short film at the London Independent Film Festival by award winnning filmmaker SUNNY KING***
So it was my job to host the evening, entertain the crowd and interview some inspiring and established figures in the entertainment industry including;
LA producer and entrepreneur CHRISTIE HSIAO
British actress and theatre producer VICKI MCKELLAR
All the way from France, GENTIANE PIOVANACCI editor of Mamarazzie news magazine (that language barrier was fun...)
Popular french artist LADYKAT
And Spain's MAC CHAKAVEH, president of the Marbella Film Festival.
Plus not to mention it was sponsored by 'The Tall Blonde' vodka... everything just seemed to fit into place quite nicely...! (The Giant Blonde would have probably been more apt..)
