MEETING WITH REPS FROM CANNES FILM FESTIVAL
I had the pleasure of meeting a member of the Cannes Directors' Fortnight Selection Commitee, Jeremy Segay, in KLCC, yesterday afternoon. I arrived late because of other commitments. Already there with him were filmmakers Mamat Khalid and Uwei Hj Shaari. Tayangan Unggul producer Gayathri Sulin was also there.
Jeremy was in town on a fact finding mission for an interesting project involving of nation's film history. Will write about it when I get the greenlight to do so.
Nevertheless, it was quite a big deal for us to meet up with him - the man who selects and chooses films for the special Directors' Fortnight in Cannes. For your movie to be screened in that section in Cannes is already an honor.
