Cannes, baby

Hi Saghar

I'm in Cannes! Yeah! I arrived 17 May and went to a premiere of The Wind That Shakes The Barley that night and went again to another premiere the next night and saw Pedro Almodovar's Volver. It's very glamorous on the red carpet and now the people at the Grand Theater Lumiere recognise me because I've been to so many premieres! It's great!

I'm going to 2 premieres tonight - one for Flandres and another for Babel - I don't know what they're about, but it's just to get on the red carpet again.

We've had lots of champagne and too little sleep - the earliest I've been to bed is 2 am, and that's the equivalent of going to bed at 9 pm in Cannes. We've been on a few yachts - the yachts are amazing; they're bigger than my house!

The other night, I was in a bar at the Hotel Martinez and Almodavar walked in, but then on another night, I went to the South African party and was mistaken for an organiser - I realised that when people kept saying to me, 'great party,' 'where are the toilets?'! But I think it was because people had had too much alcohol.

We're staying at an apartment 5 minutes away from La Croisette - that's the long street by the sea where all the cinemas and bars for Cannes are located. We paid a lot of money for it and now I'm broke! It's a loft apartment with low, sloping ceilings and we all keep banging our heads on the ceiling beams. A shelf fell off the wall one day and broke a vase, so I think the owner is not going to be very happy with us - basically the place is falling apart.

Had my film QUIETUS screened last Saturday in Cannes in the Shorts Corner - I was looking forward to it so much and one of my actresses came specially to Cannes to watch it because she had not seen it before. But I wish she hadn't, they projected a very poor quality version of my film: the images were pixelated and very dark; the lipsynch was off; and there was constant noise on the soundtrack. I was devastated - but apparently that's what happens at festivals! I had a moan to the projectionist though!

However, QUIETUS is in the Shorts Corner at Cannes along with 900 other films. That means that anyone can reserve it and watch it on a private screen, and I discovered yesterday that out of 900 films, somebody was interested enough to select my film to watch, and that person watched it for 7 minutes, which is really good for a 10 minute film because most of the time, people just browse the films and move on quickly to another film. Let's hope more than one person watches it - I'm going to check again before I leave on Friday. Next, I have to work hard to get QUIETUS into more festivals and maybe try and get distribution.

By the way, the weather here is great!

Better go, got a party to go to.

Write more tomorrow.

Vicky
