I am very excited to announce that our film, "The Opportunist" has been selected as one of 10 short films at "La Semaine De La Critique" (Critic's Week) at this year's Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France. It is an unbelievable coup to be invited to such a prestigious festival and we owe so many people an immeasurable amount of gratitude for their blood, sweat and tears to make this film a reality. I'm incredibly honored to share this moment with our supremely talented director and my best friend, David Lassiter, and our invaluable producers Alberto Roldan and Cate Smierciak. In addition, the enviable cast and crew that we were lucky enough to have for the shoot, cinematographer Mike Fuchs, editor Chris Amos, and the always talented Riccardo LeBron and Devan Liljedahl.
Founded in 1961 by the French Association of Film Critics, “La Semaine de la Critique” (Critic’s Week) is dedicated to showcasing new filmmakers from around the world. It has helped launch the careers of filmmakers from Guillermo Del Toro, Wong Kar Wai, Kevin Smith, Miranda July and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. The films of this year’s Critic’s Week will screen at the Cannes Film Festival from May 16 to May 24.
