We were thrilled to find out that Angela has been selected to show her work at the Cannes International Film Festival ! Below is an update from Angela. More news about her upcoming trip can be seen on her blog, "A Fascinating Liar". Congratulations, Angela!
Last Wednesday I was contacted by Nathalie DuBois of DPA in Los Angeles. She asked me if I would like to bring my work to the Cannes Film Festival. Of course, I was dubious at first because the offer seemed a little too good to be true and came out of thin air. I did some research and found out that DPA is the world's most highly regarded and best known gifting suites at events such as The Golden Globes, The Toronto International Film Festival, The Cannes International Film Festival and is the only gifting suit at the Venice Film Festival. Nathalie is the owner and she is the woman responsible for taking Cape Breton Handbag Designers, Michique to TIFF, Golden Globes and Cannes. As a result, she receives the Newsletters from the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design. That is where she found me. In CBCCD's most recent newsletter, they featured my show, Sinner's and Saints. Nathalie saw my work, loved it and looked me up.
After a few days of research, thinking, seeking out funding opportunities and talking to a Travel Agent and numerous local business professionals I confirmed my attendance with Nathalie this morning.
