Cannes 2017: Day 5

On our last full day at the festival, the news of the Manchester bombing fills the headlines, which puts us in sombre mood. It’s easy to get into a fishbowl existence at Cannes, where nothing really matters outside of what you’re doing along the Croisette, so the grim news from home puts everything in perspective…...

Cannes 2017: Day 4

Is it day 4 already? All sense of time and relative dimension is lost amongst the hubbub of Cannes. New to the round-up? Day 1 here, day 2 ici, day 3 et voila. It’s at this stage that I realise that this year’s diary is pretty much exactly the same run down as last year’s,…... Read more

Cannes 2017: Key Prep

We’re off to Cannes on Friday so you can expect more diary blogs like last year (re-live the thrilling experience of triple burgers, script deadlines and rogue snorers here). By ‘we’, I mean me and Tim Clague. Regular readers will know that we wrote, produced and directed Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg? together and it proved…... Read more
