Each year the highly prestigious Festival de Cannes or Cannes Film Festival is held in France. The festival has become world renown for being a hot spot for high quality mainstream and independent cinematic content. I am always excited to see the lineup of interesting and artistic films from some of the world’s leading directors and artists. I have always dreamed of attending the festival myself, however since that’s not possible, watching the films will have to do.
In the ever expanding age of accessible filmmaking, the movie market is experiencing a larger influx than ever. For the first time low budget indie feature films can break through and become just as successful as their Hollywood counterparts. Not only is this an exciting era for budding filmmakers, but it also means that the quality of storytelling is constantly on the rise.
