The Cannes film festival 2010 edition

From Cannes film festival parties to screenings at the short film corner, there is always something going on.

This year marks a new era of technologies, with 3D filmmakers in the spotlight and a whole range of special effects laden movies coming out. With Tim Burton as head of the Jury you can be sure to see some exciting selections; artistic and alternative.

The festival runs from May 12th-23rd and for those of you who are entering films into the markets and competitions, be sure to prepare in advance with your business cards, meetings and promotional materials. Competition is intense at the market screenings with thousands of films, it is difficult to find a distributor that will see your film without a special touch!

Best of luck, and check out below some of our articles to help you prepare:
