Reporting from Cannes…
Bob Sigman, my friend and occasional collaborator, is working the Cannes film market this year. He’s keeping a journal here.
The film market is a major annual showbiz event, and is famous for its film festival, which draws industry types and gawkers from around the globe. The real business takes place behind the scenes and away from the festival, where films are bought and sold and millions of dollars change hands hourly.
Bob is a the former CEO/President of Republic Pictures; he retired from the the Hollywood rat-race to pursue his own ventures. He occasionally jumps back into the movie game, and is in Cannes this year to assist his friend Enrique with film sales.
