Greensboro Writer to Cover Cannes Film FestivalMar 19th, 2012 | By Rae Alton | Category: News
One of Greensboro’s national journalists, Budd Wilkins, has just received accreditation to cover the Cannes Film Festival for Slant Magazine this May. Wilkins regularly contributes reviews – spanning all genres of cinema, new and old – for the online magazine. Here is one of our favorite reviews of his, this time for Belle de Jour.
This will be the 65th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival. The festival will run from May 16th – 27th and will be opened by a showing of the new Wes Anderson (!) film titled Moonrise Kingdom. Trailer here for fellow Andersonian die-hards.
Our heartfelt congratulations go to Budd Wilkins for receiving so high an honor! We look forward to his coverage.
