Random thread of Thoughts on Cannes this year:
1/ First year back here since before COVID and seemed busy if a little more muted than it was. Parties and drinks all felt more restrained (not a bad thing).
2/ Haven't heard of any major deals being struck (many seem to have been done pre-festival) but the sales agents I spoke to said that there was decent business being done, if not spectacular. Seemed to be a good showing from indie distrib buyers.
3/ Some concern over potential SAG strike and how that may affect other markets. Some producers considering moving production schedules back, but no outright panic.
