This year in Cannes, indieWIRE will be publishing daily film festival coverage both online and in print (May 17 - 28, 2006).
Prior to celebrating its 10th anniversary in July, indieWIRE will join the Cannes Market News team to handle extensive international market coverage in print dailies published by Le Film Francais and the Marche du Film. 13,000 copies of the English-language Cannes Market News print daily will again be distributed this year in all festival venues, hotels and throughout Cannes.
Published each afternoon, the Cannes Market News dailies will include biz news (from indieWIRE), as well as an events and comprehensive screenings list for the following day.
As always, indieWIRE.com will be updated throughout the day during the festival and our coverage will also be published in a special section of Yahoo Movies. Coverage will include biz news, a reviews column, festival buzz, press conference dispatches, iPOP photos and party reports.
All indieWIRE coverage will be available in a special Cannes section on indieWIRE.com.
