Episode 3 Dreams in Cannes

From the fifth row... in Cannes

Paul Joosse and Sezer Özdemir are two young filmmakers dreaming of a stellar career, but starting out on the very bottom rung of the film ladder. They are heading to Cannes with an ambitious plan: to present their first feature film there in 2022. Sezer (Mister Universe Turkey 2018) once attended the festival as a model, but for Paul this is the first time. Cesar follows the pair on their big adventure and tries to help them find the right parties to go to and the right people to pitch to. Will this festival be the first step on the road to success, or will they be overcome by the chaos? In contrast, Cesar tells the story of young Flemish-Romanian director Teodora Ana Mihai, whose feature debut La Civil made it straight into the festival’s prestigious Un certain regard section. How is she experiencing the festival?
