Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes



Presenting the website


and the WINNERS ARE....

I didn't think it would be possible for anything to upstage the last few days of the fest, but yes if there is one man whose indie credentials upstage them all it has to be the legendary Roger Corman walking in with none other than Peter Fonda: more in my blog coming soon about his awe-inspiring panel "School of Corman", and the power-packed films that have kept me alive for the last few days on more than just the sponsor's energy bars.



But first, the jury is out!  And the WINNERS ARE....

Best Narrative Feature ($50,000 cash prize): A Family (En Familie) by Pernille Fischer Christensen





Best Documentary Feature ($50,000 cash prize): Make Believe by J. Clay Tweel





Best Ensemble Performance in the narrative competition: Sabrina Lloyd, James Urbaniak, Lynne Cohen, Harry Chase, Nat Smith and Kamel Boutros in Adam Reid's Hello Lonesome

Best Narrative Short Film:  My Invisible Friend by Pablo Larcuen

Best Documentary Short Film: The Lucky Ones by Tomasz Wolski

Best Animated Short Film: Wonder Hospital by Beomsik Shimbe Shim


Audience Award winners will be announced tomorrow night after the closing night film 'Despicable Me'. Can't wait. (For the film, and announcement of those winners.)

I'm so happy to see the cast of HELLO LONESOME got a much deserved award. And I'll be keeping my fingers crossed tomorrow for:

Favorite Narrative Feature LAFF 2010: ANIMAL KINGDOM by David Michod

Favorite Documentary Feature LAFF 2010: WHERE ARE YOU TAKING ME? by Kimi Takesue

And my personal award for My Favorite Festival 2010: THE LOS ANGELES FILM FESTIVAL - every day has wowed me even more than the last. And there's still one more day to go!
