Just got off the phone from the AFC. As you may or may not know, the Cannes' Film Festival scout, Christian Jeune, is in town (that's Sydney, Australia) and he's here to view Aussie shorts and features made in the last 12 months.
He has about 100 films on his desk - including one VHS cassette of "A Stone Throw".
I bet you every single director and producer has just a little spark - just a teensy tiny wish - that their film will win the coveted Palme d'Or for the best short film.
100 films ... and he may take none!
A pointless post. But you gotta let the kids know how hard this is.
