    Cannes Film Festival: 10 Films That Will Be Making Noise On The Croisette

    This year at Cannes, it seems that you'll be able to throw a rock and manage to hit a celebrity.

We've run down the list of the films that are likely to be making the biggest noise on the Croisette this year, an...

    Guest Post: Leah Warshawski on "Navigating Rejection With Grace"

    The process of getting a film made is a long climb through rejection, neglect, frustration, and even some hostility. Those that "know", tell you that it is impossible -- but still tens of thousands of films get made every year despite this knowledge of the "experts". Being a filmmaker takes incred...
