No Cannes

No Cannes

I’m not attending the Cannes Film Festival this year, which is fine by me. Don’t get me wrong… Cannes can be incredible, a film lover’s temple. There’s just too much (for me) to do here in New York, and at the end of the day, it feels like I’m going to get more accomplished by staying put. Maybe it will feel different next year, maybe the tides will shift a different direction. And, maybe, one day I’ll get to simply enjoy the Cannes Film Festival as a holiday, rather than the sleep-deprived slog it can often become. Two weeks of cinema on the Mediterranean is a wonderful experience, and I’ve had some amazing memories in the three trips I’ve managed over time. I will watch the coverage from this side of the Atlantic, and I wish all of my friends who are making the trip, a safe and eventful adventure.
