For years I’ve made do at the Cannes Film Festival with a regular pink pass, which at least is better than blue and way above yellow. A couple of days ago I found out that I’ve been slightly upgraded to a pink-with-a-yellow-pastille pass — the first time this has ever happened despite years of persistent pleading. The highest-grade press pass is all white, but that’s a privelege extended mostly (only?) to veteran dead-tree types. Has an online journo ever been granted one? I’m asking.
