Philadelphia’s FlixFling and Invincible Production at the Cannes Film Festival
With so many new avenues for filmmakers to get their projects in front of viewers, most industry people find themselves caught between the old way of doing things and the emerging new media markets. One of the companies at the forefront of the next revolution in the industry is FlixFling, co-founded by Brad Heffler and Tom Ashley of Invincible Production and Distribution Company. After investing in a few individual movie deals, Heffler, a successful business entrepreneur, became interested in investing in cutting-edge new media technologies and changing the way people access and view films.

The next night, Michael Douglas and Shia Laboeuf were being interviewed right under Brad and Andrea Heffler’s balcony at the Palais Stephanie a few hours before their World Premier of Wall Street 2. After the screening, we got together with Jackie “the jokeman” Martling to discuss some business and of course hear a few of his latest and greatest jokes. The picture shows Jackie between Tom and Brad.
On Saturday night, Brad and Andrea attended the Vanity Fair/Gucci party at the magnificent Hotel Du Cap. Attached are pictures of Andrea Heffler with Jennifer Lopez, Kate Beckinsale and Tim Burton. They also met Martin Scorsese, Meg Ryan, Diane Lane, Mark Anthony, Ellen Barkin and Cuba Gooding Jr.
At the end of the 1930s, shocked by the interference of the fascist governments of Italy and Germany in the selection of films for the Mostra del cinema di Venezia, Jean Zay, the French Minister of National Education, decided to create an international cinematographic festival in France, on the proposal of Philippe Erlanger and the support of the British and Americans. Many towns were proposed as candidates, as Vichy, Biarritz or Algiers, although finally Cannes was the chosen one; thus, Le Festival International de Cannes was born.
