    KYASMA // Radioactivity (dir. Jean-Paul Frenay)

    This cinematic sci-fi thriller of a music video directed by Jean-Paul Frenay  (and funded by Swiss rock band Kyasma) tells the tale of a ‘looming crystalline disease’ that inevitably takes it’s toll on the promo’s main protagonist, played by Denis Carpentier. It was shortlisted for Best Music-based Film at The Van d’Or Awards 2013 and is included in the 2014 season Official Selection for Cannes in a Van. It’ll also be screening at the next Screen Social in London on Wednesday 13th November.

    Ciao Venice Film Festival

    An accidental film screening of a questionable film starring an Italian pornstar to an entire Italian family closes the door on Venice 2013. As the sun sets for Cannes in a Van, tired eyes are on the road and sights are set on future events.

  • ATLAS – Eat Me

    ATLAS – Eat Me

    As The Van d’Or Awards approach ever-faster,  we at Cannes in a Van look forward to seeing and hearing the extraordinary vocal talents of the marvellous ATLAS, who will be performing live on the night of September 19th. “The melodies that haunt the music of ATLAS come to their creator after dark. While you’re asleep, her violent lullabies are voiced over reverberating bass and electronic enchantments. So watch, and listen closely. These dramatic visions – projected dreams and potent nightmares [...]

  • Street Cinema at The Venice Film Festival

    Street Cinema at The Venice Film Festival

    Venice is not known for its roads, so screening films on the street from a Ford Transit van isn’t always easy. The Venice Lido is a strip of land with 12km of beaches, protecting the islands of Venice from the sea and elements. This is where the 70th Biennale di Venezia happens, and where Cannes in a Van pitches up.

  • Virgins of Venice

    Virgins of Venice

    Our first day on the Lido began with a level of apprehension; it was to be the first time in Cannes in a Van history that we’d attempt to screen films publicly on the street for those at the 70th annual Venice Film Festival. Armed with the Official Selection from the 2012 Van d’Or Independent Film Awards and some newly submitted Italian films – our intention was to sit on the fringe of one of the worlds oldest and most [...]

    London to Venice – In Transit

    Over a thousand miles, traveling through six different countries, three blokes embark on a long and arduous journey, the destination? The 70th annual Venice Film Festival. Setting off on Wednesday 28th August from London, UK, we travelled to Folkestone to catch the Eurotunnel before speeding through France into Belgium. Onwards then to Germany, where we organized a film screening at a film academy in Ludwigsburg, close to Stuttgart. The sun was battling our plasma in the late afternoon so time came to [...]

  • The Anchor (dir. Luke Daniels)

    The Anchor (dir. Luke Daniels)

    A favourite from the 2011 Van d’Or Awards, director Luke Daniels‘ perfectly-formed (in our opinion) poignant short film features the stirling acting talents of one Liam Bewley who is currently appearing in a Marmite viral near you (and an excellent ‘yeast-extract welfare officer’ he makes too). Co-written by both Bewley and Daniels, the film won the Van d’Or for Best Screenplay and tells the tale of a one man and his relationship with a bar stool. The Anchor is touching, clever [...]
