Film festivals face an additional hurdle to other types of arts organisations: Netflix and the pre-domination of online movie providers. This means that the traditional ways people access and watch movies has shifted from movie theatres and DVDs to online distribution.

Valleyspeak has made a comeback. But not the LA valley girl dialect that defined the nineties (like, seriously?). In the past week, Silicon Valley has gone gaga about a new instant messaging app / social network that only allows you to communicate with one word: Yo!

There Are Women Issues in Cannes

Say 'Cannes' to the average guy or girl on the street, and they automatically think film festival. However, for the last six days, it has been the media industry clogging up La Croisette - the famous boutique-lined, beach-front boulevard - for the annual Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity. A melting pot of advertising creatives, PR gurus and media moguls this week flew into Cannes to drink their body weight in rosé, shake hands on deals and, if they were really lucky, party with Kim Kardashian. Away from the starry parties, however, the advertising industry is facing many of the same challenges other industries do, starting with the lack of women role models.

The Rover - Cannes Film Festival Review

The opening preamble states that it's set in Australia, '10 years after the collapse'. It's a bleak and desolate place but one that doesn't look that much different to the outback that has been portrayed on film for decades, except there's even fewer women and a lot more people shooting at each other. The recent BFI re-release of Wake In Fright would appear to be a key influence.
