The Most Batsh*t Bonkers Movies At Cannes Film Festival 2016
It's not all glitz. Sometimes it's burping pigs and robot dogs, too.
While the Hollywood A-list attend premieres for their most anticipated movies of the next year at Cannes’s Palais du Cinema, it’s hard to imagine the world’s most straight up fancy film festival has a scuzzy side. But it does! And it lives below ground.
Like the portrait of Dorian Grey, while the elite get evermore glam, an underbelly of weird movies you’ll probably never hear of live in the basement of the very same building.
This is the Marche du Film – literally Market of Film. Filmmakers bring their off-brand produce with the hope of selling them to movie studios at the festival. They’re shown off in booths in the basement. Like the Ideal Home Show, but with less spiralisers and a lot more robot dog movies.
The movies here are weird, wonderful – and utterly bonkers. And this is your guided tour through the mad world of the Marche’s wares…
*FYI I know nothing about ANY of these films because I didn’t want to get stuck in a meeting and accidentally buy one of them. Although I do fancy owning the distributor rights to Arlo the Burping Pig.
