Paranoid Park Takes Home Special Prize from Cannes

by admin

“Jury President Stephen Frears awarded a 60th Anniversary Prize to Gus Van Sant for Paranoid Park.”

“Gus Van Sant accepted this Anniversary Award and expressed his appreciation: ‘Thanks, Stephen, and thanks to the Jury and thanks to the family Karmitz for backing this film. It had very humble beginnings and for the short film as well. Thanks to my producers. Of course thanks to Gilles Jacob and Thierry Frémaux for this Festival; it’s been a really good one this year. Thanks to Chris Doyle and Rain Li for the cinematography and Blake Nelson for writing the original book that it’s from and all the others who helped make it. Thank you.'”

Congrats to Gus, Blake, cast and crew!

Festival de Cannes

by admin

Bonjour from the Riviera! I’m in Cannes along with about 30 others from production for the screening of the Gus Van Sant film “Paranoid Park,” which we cast last year and which is competing for the top prize: the Palme d’Or.

I’ll be sending updates to Oregonian film critic Shawn Levy’s Mad About Movies blog, if you’d like to keep abreast of the developments.

A plus tard!
