Cannes of the North?

'A major new festival will be launched this summer in the "Brighton of the North", set up by local resident and multi-award winning actresses Tilda Swinton and backed by Mark Cousins, a former director of the Edinburgh Film Festival, and the Oscar-winning writer/director Joel Coen.'
Looks like The Herald scooped the Nairnshire and the Gurn on this one. And speaking of festivals, was it just the good weather last month or anything to do with the Book and Arts Festival that so many people seemed to wearing white/cream jackets and or trousers? What do film buffs wear? Maybe the Gurn will have to hire a papperazi section to hang out at the Ballerina? Will iright wear white?
