FOOTNOTES FROM FRANCE
Cleaning out the files and folders from Canes and its aftermath I turned up a series of reviews for in-competition films. Here they are:

The CEO and I will be heading to California at the end of July and first of August. Going to visit family, look at stuff, will probably haul finished screenplays along and throw them at people...see if anyone takes a look.
Attention friends in the L.A. area...we're coming and hope to see some of you!
Tentative plans are already in place to repeat last year's MTFB soiree: "The Guide to the Ride/The Flow of The SHOW". Specifics are not definitive other than we're planning to do it again at the River Club and it will likely be late Friday afternoon.
We're aiming to provide some refreshment and a nosh and, with any luck, a special guest or two.
It was the highlight of the festival for me last year to get to meet actual living, breathing readers. I hope everyone who came last year will return and that we get some new faces there as well.
I'll pass along further details as they firm up...but, rest assured...YOU ARE INVITED!
