    Cannes International Cinema is a fantastic way to showcase your Indie project. There are many categories which helps define your project specifically, so you're competing on a level playing field. We are grateful to win for Best Comedy at their Indies Cinema Awards, and grateful to have their winning laurel attached to our project for future pitching purposes.
