Cannes Film Festival
Just jumping into the doc again after the Cannes experience. In spite of all the hoopla you see and hear on this major film festival, some very serious business gets done there and should be on every filmmakers calendar. So grateful for the new contacts that I have made, now returning to the great weather here - and the ongoing story of our film. Jumped into action with a visit to Whitehall to watch the demonstration organized through Facebook on the plight of ME. Although the supporters were not as many as expected, some very ill people showed up, (there may have been a clash with the Invest in ME conference also taking place in London today) visit the link on the back page. It was nice to meet a Facebook friend or two. Some of the demonstrators went on to talk to their MP in the Houses of Parliament. This all gives more impetus again to get this film on the road! Will return to our patient editor Oli this week to complete the new teaser trailer shortly coming to the site. Keep tuned.
