For my recent Cannes despatches, read the IBT feature first, with the opening night gala and towering celebrity tales. Then my tips for festival virgins; hanging with the Bond spoofers; and streakers, lesbian love-ins and Nuke ‘Em High with the Troma crew.
For more about my own film in the Short Film Corner, Colonel Badd, see outtakes here and posters here.
