Celia's Diary CannesWritten by Celia Evans 29 May 2012
The Cannes Film Festival for me is a mix of luxury, glamor, manic amounts of meetings, organizing, filming and parties. Its a perfect mix of love and hate because for all the fun that is had, there is also an equal dose of stress and exhaustion. Its always like that and this year was no different.
I came with my camera girl Elsa, a ex-model who is a true free spirit. We got great of coverage of Brad Pitt, who was there with his new film "Killing Them Softly" and Sean Penn who had an event for Haiti. We also got coverage of the best events, Chopard, Dior, Di Grisogono, and the Space Party at the Richard Nillson, Richard Branson Luxury Property, the Villa Oxygen. Elsa and I also covered the Monaco Grand Prix, which is a story for later.
We had some amazing sponsors during the trip, among them were Beach Junkie swimwear by Kayleigh Ann, a gorgeous young entrepreneur and socialite from the UK. Her brand Beach Junkie is a representation of modern, young luxury. We also were fortunate enough to represent a brand called Ecoloblue. It is an atmospheric water generator created by a charming globetrotting couple who recognized the need in the world for access to efficient clean drinking water. The machines, the size of a small water cooler, creates water from the humidity in the air. Its based on the principles of collecting condensation that would build up from a humidifier and then purifying it. The result, 8 gallons of ultra pure drinking water a day. The global ramifications are astounding.

I also spent a lot of time with good friend Jennifer Niejadlik, a Film Producer from Holland who has been a contributing writer for Planet Fashion many times. She was in Cannes to sell films. I was is Cannes as Press. We had so many funny and interesting experiences. More on our story later.
