It's been an exciting week as the news of "The Opportunist" being selected into La Semaine De La Critique (Critic's Week) at the Cannes Film Festival starts to feel real. We've posted a number of production stills from the film to give people a taste. We're hoping that a big part of the publicity about our film leading up until the premiere will come from the fact that it is the ONLY American short film in competition at Cannes this year. We can't quite wrap our minds around that just yet, but it's pretty exciting.
The Hollywood Report picked up on the story, mentioning us as the sole short American entry into this year's Critic's Week. Read the full story: here.
Indiewire Magazine singled us out at the only the American film at all in Critic's Week and gave a shout-out to me in the lead role: read it here. They actually used a still that came from a rehearsal we were doing a few months before the film went into production.
The biggest news so far though is that we got our Premiere Date! We'll be screening for the first time ever on May 18th at 2:00pm at Espace Miramar at the Cannes Film Festival in France! More info to come...
