It’s that time of the year again, when directors set out to showcase their movie masterpieces in the world’s biggest film festival! Lomography and MUBI have something in the works with the organizers of Cinefondation, who selects some fifteen to twenty short and medium-length films each year from all over the world.
We’ve been keeping all things Cannes on close watch from our booth in Palais since Day 1, especially on the Short Film corner, whose directors we’ve given the chance to join our mini movie contest! The prize? Our newest, top secret Lomography camera!
