The glamorous Cannes Film Festival has long been known as a melting pot of international talent, where stars from Hollywood and beyond come together to celebrate the art of cinema. Bela, who is not just an actress but also a screenwriter and director, flew to France to learn more about the film industry.
“The education I’m getting here in Cannes is so precious to me. If I had told myself at 16 that I’d be here today, talking to fellow filmmakers about the right directions to follow and necessary changes we need to adapt to make life easier for the next generation, I would have laughed,” she shared in an Instagram post.
She added, “It’s only been 3 days and I have another week here and I can’t wait for what’s next.”
