There’s a launch party happening at the Columbus Hotel in Monte Carlo on Tuesday, 5.16 — the night before the Cannes Film Festival begins — to announce the International Emerging Talent Film Festival , which hopes to begin each year a few days before Cannes. American Cinematheque’s Margot Gerber is handling U.S. publicity. Participating supporters include producers Tricia Van Klaveren (Lying, Edmond), Bruce Cohen (Big Fish ), and George Litto (The Crew). I’d go but that The DaVinci Code press screening at 8:30, man…it’s a toughie.
