May 16, 2016

your secretNew York Film Academy One Year Filmmaking and 4-Week Producing graduate Anthony James Faure’s short film, Your Secret, will be showcased at the Short Film Corner in Cannes this year and will be available throughout the whole event in their video library (from May 16th to May 22nd, 2016). A special screening will also be held on May 19th, at 4:20PM in screening room PALAIS G.

Shot in New York, the film is the French native’s first American film, which stars Jason Arcaro, Leah J. Clark, Giacomo Rocchini, Felipe Muñoz and Scott Schutzman.

The story surrounds George, a building concierge who blackmails random people in New York, always asking for the same amount of money, pretending that he knows their secrets. One day, he blackmails the wrong person—his neighbor Harley—who just so happens to be an art thief

Also showing at Cannes, from Les Films de l’Ours, is Rosetta’s Blues, produced by Faure and directed by another One-Year Filmmaking graduate, Rabia Sultana.

The story is about Rosetta, who finds it difficult to come to terms with her father’s passing. She acts out in theatrical and amusing ways as methods of coping until she finds Harvey, a man who inspires her and helps her along her journey. Rosetta’s Blues will screen on May 19th at 3:45pm in screening room Palais H.

With two short films being showcased, Faure is hard at work in post-production of his first feature film Kids with Guns, co-written with Antony Renault and produced in 2014 through an online French crowdfunding platform, KissKissBankBank.

Check out the first teaser before its launch at festivals later this year.
