Cannes is an ideal, a filmmaking standard, not a place in… France? I think it’s in France. Anyhow, only the most prestigious films play in Cannes and all the famous people go there to kiss each other on the mouths. We’ve taken it upon ourselves to decide what films actually win Cannes. They may not win the Palme d’Or, but in our opinion, lots of movies can win Cannes whether or not they screened at any film festivals at all. Come hang out with us, we’ll talk about movies, filmmakers, and whatever we think deserves to win Cannes. We’re handing out Palm Doors like it’s nobody’s business!


Maddiy [All posts by Madeleine…]
Editor-in-Chief, Master-o-Cannes

Madeleine Koestner is a lady living in New York City. She likes movies a lot, and she likes to watch a lot of them in a row. Her qualifications for most things are how many movies she has seen, which is too many. She is an advocate of watching films on film, and considers the viewing of a film print to be a bragging point. Although she would like to see every movie, and feels there is merit in every single movie-viewing experience, she tends to favor genre film, leaning in the horror direction. She also really likes documentaries, although she doesn’t see enough current ones.

Ella Cheri [All posts by Ella Cheri…]
Super Cute Writer

Ella Cheri is a model, actress, and real life clone. She was birthed when a mad scientist built a cloning machine and used it to replicate the most beautiful woman he had ever seen: a tall dark haired waitress at a New York City diner. Who was that woman? I have no idea. But from her genetic coding, Ella was created, a blank slate who learned fast and developed a brilliant mind of her very own. She has acted in several low budget horror films since then. You should send Ella flirtatious emails at eeecheri [at] gmail [dot] com, or friend her on Facebook.
