For its four months of existence, Festivalists has proved to be playful and serious at the same time! After our highly successful collaboration with Filmkrant's Slow Criticism Project during Berlinale, it is time for another game, and now we want to include not only film journalists and critics, but all type of industry professionals!
“Take nothing on its looks; take everything on evidence,” wrote Charles Dickens in Great Expectaions. Let’s turn this phrase upside down and apply it to the most hyped cinema event of the year, Cannes Film Festival! Tell us briefly which is for you the most anticipated film, feature or short, from this year’s line-up and why (you can choose from the Official Competition + Un Certain Regard, Directors’ Fortnight or Critics’ Week). What are your Great Expectations based on? Is it a gut feeling, reputation, buzz, affinity for certain style or theme? Is it about surprise or deliverance?
Please email your response to contact |АТ| festivalists.com before midnight GMT of May 10th. We would appreciate if you include also your field of work, company name, company website (if available), and position. If you will visit Cannes to present your work, please kindly leave the corresponding title(s) out of the poll and look for your inner cinephile. In case you will be covering the festival as a journalist, we would love to follow you (and so would probably our audience), so please do not hesitate to provide us with more details!
Put a bow-tie, spread the word & may the hype begin!
P.S. After watching your greatly expected film in Cannes, feel free to send us a follow-up!
