If you couldn’t go to Cannes, you could come to Cannes Not! Our alternative festival screening recreated the French Riviera with a red carpet, palm trees, paparazzi, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, and the awarding of the Golden Tea Leaf award for the best short film – congratulations to our winner Matt Scholes for “Tiras” (see our Vimeo channel ). Then we settled down to the wonderfully original, colourful and slightly bonkers The Umbrellas of Cherbourg. Ohh la la!
