Before our Celebrating Cinema podcast takes a summer hiatus, we had the chance to check in with our film critic @hemmerzael for a special episode on @cannes_filmfestival! Hugo, part of a jury in Cannes and chatting to us from the French Riviera, joins LAB111 programmer @tomwaist, who wrestles with his fomo, as Hugo considers this the greatest edition of the renowned festival. With his love for lists Tom runs us through his own picks and potential inspirations for future programs at LAB111, mixed with Hugo’s anecdotes of socialising with Adèle Haenel.

Next episode

We will be taking a mini-summer hiatus but we will return in September for our big 10th episode, with the whole crew back together! Please keep spreading the word of the podcast if you have been enjoying it so far. As always if you have any feedback, questions or topics for discussion then please write in to
