Meet one of our Cannes insiders, young Canadian filmmaker Virginie Bélanger. She's shooting her film festival experience using the LomoKino and we can't wait for its premiere! While we're waiting for the final cut, check out some of her behind-the-scenes photos from the 65th Cannes Film Festival!
Here’s a short and sweet note from Virginie:
What I love the most about Cannes is that during the festival, the whole city and everybody that invades it lives and breathes cinema. It’s as if our cinephile hearts beat to the rhythm of our love for film and the avatars of our passion are everywhere around us. And it kind of feels like Heaven for this film lover.
Cannes’ beauty is incommensurable and I am having a great time shooting a little video with the ever so awesome LomoKino and sharing pictures with you through an analog filter!

While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.

Dora Kontha makes the familiar worthy of a tribute. She frames icy weather or glinting water so that it looks boundless, more than a spread of pretty blue. Analog photography, her medium of choice, makes these everyday sights as intimate as memory itself.
