Film students touch down in Cannes

Twelve student films from Griffith Film School will screen at the prestigious Cannes International Film Festival in May this year.

The Neon King – a film exploring one explosive night between two best mates in 1970s regional Australia – will have its official premiere at the Festival, with students Cameron March (Director), Jordan Lynagh (writer/producer) and Danielle Redford (Producer) in France for the occasion.

The crew says they’re excited for the opportunity to see their work screened before a global audience.

“It’s always interesting seeing the responses you get from people whose backgrounds vary so much from your own, and with such an Australian story we’re looking forward to hearing the responses and seeing how our work is perceived,” Danielle says.

“Cannes is a fantastic learning environment and provides the opportunity to connect with people within the industry from all over the world.

“We’re looking to make new connections and form relationships which will continue to play a part in our future work,” she says.
