Cannes Film Festival

This year I went to my first Cannes Film Festival and absolutely loved the experience. The energy of a screening at a film festival is so very special!

Among the movies I watched and particularly loved was “Corsage” based on the story of Empress Elizabeth of Austria (Queen Sisi), it’s funny, visually stunning and I cried a bit at the end. Vicky Krieps won Best Performance - Un Certain Regard which is totally deserved and I highly recommend watching it as it is coming to cinemas in London soon.

I am still catching up on some of the films I missed myself as they are slowly coming to the cinemas.

Earlier in the year, TikTok launched the global #TikTokShortFilm competition celebrating their partnership with the Festival de Cannes. I enjoyed making my short film as part of the competition using TikTok’s creative tools. I describe it as an experimental film about love and separation. As I’m trying to get into the spirit of creating and sharing my own work this was an excellent exercise for me and the film was entirely created and filmed by myself on my iPhone (with a little help from a friend) in a span of 2 days, so I call it a sort of my own 48-hour challenge. You can see it here.

I hope you like it. I’m a crazy perfectionist so it’s not easy for me to share work which has been done with limited resources and without a film crew but it was fun to make and I do want to share my creativity.
