We've been busy.
Since running Trash Cannes and Trash'd over the first weekend of September 2014, we've been hard at work providing content for our website, under the banner of Trash Cannes TV. Here you can see films that have premiered at Trash Cannes, listen to a podcast interview with Vic Godard and catch up on what we here at Trash Cannes have been doing over the last few months.

A word from our patron, Mr TV Smith:
The Trash Cannes Festival is that rare thing: a group of enthusiasts getting together to create a truly unique festival - with the bonus that it's scattered around some fabulous locations in Hastings, a town worth the visit alone. Apart from the film screenings at the core of the festival, there are satellite events comprising gigs, discussions and art exhibitions. It's completely non-corporate and independent, and the love that's gone into organising it is infectious. I can't recommend it highly enough.
