(May 19, 2016 – Cannes, France) There is nothing boring about Cannes with the possible exception of the weather since it always seems like another perfect day. On Tuesday of this week some of the Canadian contingent gathered for a photo overlooking the marina at Cannes.

Pictured from left to right are Monique Simard, President and CEO, SODEC; François Jaros, director; Xavier Dolan, director; Kim Nguyen, director; Carolle Brabant, Executive Director, Telefilm Canada.

Xavier Dolan is here with his film Juste la fin du monde (Just the End of the Word), Kim Nguyen with Two Lovers and a Bear, Nathan Morlando with Mean Dreams, and François Jaros and Oh What a Wonderful Felling. Their films were all selected to screen at Cannes this year.
