Cannes Cannes Cannes!

Pp Cannes fever is starting to kick in. And it’s VERY exciting. We put Gone Fishing into the festival and we all hope that we get selected. I have to mention one unsung star of Gone Fishing. French Film maker Sylvie Bolioli has been helping out in the background at almost every turn. Her latest immense job was that of translating the press pack for Gone Fishing into French. You can view it here. It’s pretty nifty.

We wanted to remove as many potential barriers to possible selection in Cannes – and that meant professionally translating everything.

And then we just got this email back from Cannes!

So thank you Sylvie for helping get us this far.

Sylvie is also making a fascinating documentary off her own back about the insanity defence plea in the American justice system – she has a website here with some video clips for those who are interested.

Onward and upward!
