Cannes Film Festival 2018: familiar faces on the Croisette!

April 12, 2018

The Official Selection of the 71th Cannes Film Festival (May 8th-19th 2018) revealed this morning holds some exciting promises for the TFL Community: no less than 3 films involve professionals closely related to TorinoFilmLab!

First of all, TFL Alumnus Aditya Assarat will be presenting the collective work 10 YEARS IN THAILAND in the Special Screenings section. This ensemble of four Thai short films imagines the state of Thailand, ten years into the future. The other filmmakers who participated in the project are Wisit Sasanatieng, Chulayarnon Sriphol & Golden Palm-winner Apichatpong Weerasethakul.
Aditya participated in the very first edition of FrameWork, in 2008, and directed the TFL Film HI-SO (Busan IFF 2010, “A Window on Asian Cinema”).

Furthermore, two of the films selected for the Offical Competition were produced by TFL experts: FeatureLab Trainer Didar Dohmeri produced Eva Husson’s GIRLS OF THE SUN – starring Golshifteh Farahani –, with her Paris-based company Maneki Films; while COLD WAR, by the Polish Academy Award-winner Pawel Pawlinowski (IDA) is produced by TFL Alumna & ScriptLab Talent Advisor Ewa Puszczyńska.

Congratulations and good luck to all of them!
