Some Lucky LA Journos Gear Up for Cannes Film Festival

Although the Cannes Film Festival leaves a much bigger international than American footprint, it remains the most important such event on the annual calendar. Among the LA based critics hitting the Croisette for this year’s 64th edition are Jeffrey Wells (Hollywood-Elsewhere.com), Sasha Stone (AwardsDaily.com), and James Rocchi, a contributor to MSN and other outlets.

After flying to France on Monday, Rocchi filed a scene-setting piece that sources fellow reporters such as EW‘s Anthony Breznican, the Wall Street Journal‘s Anthony Kaufman, and MSN colleage Glenn Kenny. Says Kenny:

That wasn’t enough.

To wit, we’ll let Mr. Martin have it his way:

“NYU adjunct associate professor Reed Martin has written a new book he hopes will help first- and second-time indie filmmakers navigate the current economic downturn. ‘The Reel Truth,’ (Faber & Faber, Jan. 2009) draws from more than 100 interviews with leading names in the independent film world, which has seen its share of hard times of late. This past year alone saw the closings of New Line Cinema, Picturehouse, Paramount Vantage, and Warner Independent Pictures, as older audiences stayed home with Netflix rentals and TiVo while younger moviegoers found it hard to pull away from Facebook updates and Xbox LIVE.”
