Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes services and offers


Palm Springs

The Palm Springs International Film Festival plays host to a fabulous array of movies and movie stars. The Festival features a stellar line-up of more than 175 films from 60 countries, special events and gala receptions. 

The Palm Springs International Festival of Short Films has become known world-wide for the extraordinary community of filmmakers it attracts, and for the quality and scope of its programming. This celebrated event is the largest festival of its kind in America, showcasing over 320 short films each year from more than 40 countries, with a library of more than 2700 films available to film buyers, industry and press in the Film Market running concurrently with the Festival.



The Belgian film THE INVADER (2011) screened in the 'New Voices/New Visions' category of at the 23rd Palm Springs International Film Festival 2012, wowing audiences with its stunning visual artistry and the magnetic force of newcomer Issaka Sawadogo's stellar performace as Amadou.


At the 68th Venice Film Festival, Belgian director Nicolas Provost held his world premier for his first feature film THE INVADER (2011). I interviewed director Nicolas Provost in Toronto TIFF 2011 where he held his North American premier.

THE INVADER is an intense and arresting arthouse dramatic thriller about an African immigrant, AMADOU (played hauntingly by actor Isaka Sawadogo) who travels to Belgium for a new and hopefully better life. While finding himself at long last in the highly anticipated land of his dreams, he becomes beset by the hostile modern Europe living in poverty and isolation. He finds refuge in a white woman that becomes his lover and the subject of his projected fantasies of love and beginnings in a new world. It is a moving film that calls into question our notion of immigration and forces us to look differently at ‘the other’ and deeper within ourselves.
