The man’s formative years were spent flinging his extensive film knowledge in the general direction of willing and unwilling ears and his movies are laced with comments on films, past and present. So who better to stand in front of a room full of attentive film lovers and natter to his heart’s content?
By man, of course, I refer to Quentin Tarantino and by natter I mean speak intelligently- and that he will when he addresses the Cinema Masterclass at the upcoming 2008 Cannes Film Festival. Tarantino is set to speak of his experiences in the film industry from directing both big and small budget features to his much-acclaimed screenwriting prowess.
The one-time Jury President and Palme d-Or winner will follow in the rather sizable footsteps of 2007 orator Martin Scorsese when he takes the stage during the Festival in the south of France, which runs from the 14th – 25th of May. Tarantino, whose Death Proof was entered in the festival last year, was an eager listener when Scorsese gave his inspirational lecture on his extensive career in the business.
