Watch: Cannes 2012 Bloggers Favorite Films and Experiences Recap

Two questions: what was your favorite film and best experience? One last recap of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, this time in video form, featuring a group of my blogger/critic friends. Throughout the last few days in Cannes, I met up with five of my colleagues in various places around the festival to ask them those two questions - their favorite film and favorite experiences. Everyone gave me a different answer for each question, and if you're tired of hearing my opinion, this features a range of opinions mentioning a variety of great films this year. I couldn't be happier with how this turned out and the responses I got. Watch below!
Here's our final Cannes 2012 video recap, curated/recorded by Alex. (Audio may be a bit rough in spots.)
