Video Description for Gone Fishing at the Cannes Film Festival

Gone Fishing at the Cannes Film Festival
I am now back in the UK and I slept 16 hours last night and I am still tired What a Cannes 2008 was The final day when we had the screening and the after screening party was so much fun The screening was off the 35mm print in the Palais and it cost about Acirc pound 140 for the room for half an hour This was an advantage to screenings in the short film corner as it was presented in all it s visual and acoustic glory and not on a computer screen in a window One problem we had is that the screening was at 11 30 and the projectionist insisted at starting at 11 30 on the dot even though we had booked and paid for the full half hour And believe me there is not negotiating with these guys I did manage to squeeze two minutes out of him but even that was a struggle ScreeningThe after screening party was held at the Century Club on the beach and it was tough to get people in as so much is always going on But we got a good group and they watched the film on a big plasma Dennis Hopper was just next door and Ivan invited him in but his body guard took of Ivan just as he opening his mouth Dennis just smiled and chewed on his cigar I also got a very serious offer from an LA based producer who was very impressed with the short particularly the look and sound but also the strong commercial sensibilities of the story He liked that fact that it wasn t depressing or social realist in content or about a dripping tap So now I am thinking about a screening in LA very soon also in part to get the Oscar accreditation On reflection we learned a few things during this day that we will implement next time 1 If you screening starts at 11 30 tell everyone it starts at 11 15 giving enough time for people to be a bit late The Cannes projectionists will start screening on the minute They won t care about your problems 2 Have a hot girl handing out fliers We were approached at one point by a very attractive short skirted French film maker and almost EVERYONE took a ticket for her film and a fair few turned up to her screening Sorry if this sounds sexist and yes it is sexist but it also works 3 Have something free at your party ideally drinks and nibbles If people have to buy their own drinks they won t come Anyway I am back and exhausted If you watch the video I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed being there Onward and upward Chris Jones Film Maker and Author www livingspirit com mail livingspirit com

News Report:


Marijuana fans pack 4/20 events in Colorado, Washington state

Thousands of marijuana enthusiasts gathered in Colorado and Washington state over the weekend for an annual celebration of cannabis culture with rallies, concerts and trade shows in the first two US states to legalize recreational marijuana.

Voters in both Western states approved ballot initiatives in 2012 allowing personal possession and use of marijuana by anyone aged 21 and or older for purposes of just getting high, though public consumption of pot remains illegal.

In January the world's first state-licensed retail marijuana outlets opened for business in Colorado, and stores in Washington are set to follow suit later this year. Both states are among 20 that have already removed criminal sanctions for medical use of marijuana.

The federal government still classifies marijuana as an illegal narcotic, but the Obama administration has given states new leeway to experiment with legalized cannabis.

In Denver's Civic Center Park near the state capitol, revelers on Sunday gathered to hear music and listened to speakers during a weekend event that organizers billed as the "world's largest 4/20 rally."

The date of April 20, or 4/20, corresponds to the numerical code widely recognized within the cannabis subculture as a symbol for all things marijuana.

Police officers standing by on the fringes of the Denver festival issued 63 citations on Sunday, most for smoking pot in public—a ticket that carries a fine of $150. About half as many were cited on Saturday, police said.

At least eight individuals were taken to a detoxification facility for treatment during the two days, police said.

Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson said officers have refrained from wading into the crowd to arrest violators, but instead were citing people who openly defied the public consumption ban.

"Those ticketed were blatantly in violation of state law and city ordinances," Jackson said.

Organizers of the rally and city officials beefed up security at the event after three people were wounded by gunfire at last year's rally.

Separately, the Cannabis Cup, a trade show sponsored by High Times magazine, drew sold-out crowds over the weekend at a Denver convention venue.

The two-day event featured marijuana sampling and workshops, such as how to open a pot shop, cultivation tips, and how to talk to children about weed, according to the event's website.

Rachel O'Bryan, spokeswoman for Smart Colorado, an organization that advocates for stricter enforcement of marijuana laws, said the cannabis industry needs to do more to police its own.

"People are flouting the law by openly consuming," she said. "We're concerned about the message that sends to our kids."

Celebrating with bongs at a brewery

In Seattle, several hundred people who paid $15 a head crowded the cavernous interior of a former brewery where Rainier Beer was made for decades to attend a 4/20 gathering organized by sponsors of the city's annual Hempfest rally.

Reggae music played over loudspeakers and the air inside was thick with the sweet, skunky odor of cannabis. But no police were visible at the event, which organizers deliberately held on private space leased from the brewery owners in an industrial section of the city south of downtown.

The gathering featured a workshop on how to roll a joint with an entire ounce (28 grams) of marijuana—the legal limit for personal possession in the state—as well as vendors selling pipes and other paraphernalia, and a blind-toke test in which participants tried to distinguish between different strains of pot by sampling them. 

Attendees ranged from middle-aged baby boomers to a younger crowd from the so-called millennial generation.

A cheer from the crowd went up at precisely 4:20 p.m. local time, as many attendees milling about outside lit joints and pipes simultaneously, sending puffs of smoke into the air followed by raucous fits of coughing.

ne woman in the crowd accepted a joint handed her from a bearded bystander.

"You look just like Jesus," she exclaimed in an apparent reference to the event coinciding with Easter Sunday. "How does it feel to be risen?"

Doug Medina, 54, said he traveled hundreds of miles with his wife and daughter from Billings,Montana, to Seattle for the 4/20 weekend celebrations there.

"It feels a little more open than it did five or 10 years ago," he said while smoking a joint outside the brewery. —Reuters
