Touch producer Mark O’Neill and writer/director Noel Harris were fortunate enough to have Touch chosen for two separate platforms in Cannes. It was part of the 2016 Cannes Film Festival – Short Film Corner. Touch was also one of fifteen short films selected from around the globe to screen as part of the 2016 Diversity In Cannes Short Film Showcase where it was selected for the Jury Choice Award.
Cannes was beautiful. The plethora of sidewalk cafes, the perfect everyday weather of 22C and sunny, the sandy beaches, and most of all, being able to see world premiere films. We were proud that a NL story, made by a NL cast and crew, was part of Cannes.
