The Daily Buzz at Cannes: Episode 1

We’re back with another edition of The Daily Buzz at Cannes for the 68th Edition of the Annual Cannes Film Festival.

The Daily Buzz caught up with SXSW Programmers Jarod Neece and Claudette Godfrey at the Rado Plage restaurant located beachside just minutes from the Palais on the Croisette. They're both in the South of France attending the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. Working hard to bring films back to Austin for next year’s SXSW, these two haven’t had a chance to work on their tans or soak their feet in the Mediterannean. Instead, they’ve been going to back-to-back screenings and have barely seen the light outside of a screening room — but the Daily Buzz chatted with them briefly during the Busan International Film Festival Luncheon at Plage Rado.

SXSW Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award winner, "Krisha" by Trey Shultz, is playing in the Director’s Fortnight section of the festival and SXSW short film.

"Share" by Pippa Bianco will screen in the Cinéfondation short film competition lineup.  Out of 18 films, 14 live action fiction shorts and 4 animated shorts, Bianco’s film is the only U.S. short film in this category.
