I can’t make the festival this year (I’m just too busy!) but if you happen to be in Cannes next week, you can catch a benefit to honor the earthquake victims in Abruzzo, Italy consisting of a powerful film presentation with musical performance and cocktail reception. It will take place on 20 May 2009 at 3pm at the 2009 Cannes International Film Festival.

Members of the film industry, artists and citizens of the world will gather at the benefit for the world premiere of the film and musical concert “CANTO 6409“, a 22′ film that was created and directed by Dino Viani, an independent filmmaker who participated in festivals around the year, including the Biennale of Venice last year. The film will be accompanied by a live performance by contemporary music composer Emanuel Dimas de Melo Pimenta, who collaborated with John Cage between 1986 and 1992 and remains as composer for Merce Cunningham in New York City.
