Our Cannes team grew by leaps and bounds this year with the addition of our lead critic Eric Kohn (Screen Rush, Anne Thompson (Thompson On Hollywood), Todd McCarthy (Todd McCarthy’s Deep Focus) and Sydney Levine & Peter Belsito (Sydney’s Buzz) to the indieWIRE family. While I don’t think any of us got than just a couple of hours of sleep last night, we met up early this morning at the Grand Hotel for coffee, chocolat chaud, croissant and conversation. We traded gossip and info one the films, companies and people in and around the festival this year before heading off in different directions to take on the festival as it kicks into gear today.
