Hello, dear creatives! How’s everyone’s week so far? Well, we are halfway through this week and what better way than to see what’s happening in Cannes, France, where the 72nd Cannes Film Festival is taking place. The annual event started yesterday, May 14 and will run until May 25. I went online to their official website and found the press kit available to download. Here is some info on the festival…
