Jennifer Linch Takes home the Grand Prize at iCannes International Film Festival

At iCannes International Film Festival last night . This festival holds a very special meaning to me from now and forever. I will never forget this. Not because we won the Grand Prize but because of the work of the beloved founder , the young-beautiful-respected producer Rebecca Guzman who passed away on the same date of her first international film festival . On the hospital bed before passing , she still reminded her loved-ones about the festival yesterday 7-7 at 7 p.m . She died on 7-7 on my birthday 7-7 and I won her grand prize at her festival . Her partners and colleagues are keeping her legacy alive and will continue to make the festival bigger and stronger next year . Rebecca Guzman's last work has given me and my team the chance for Flowers of The Night to get the exposure its needs at Cannes Film Market where studios, investors , buyers buying movies to distribute around the world. Rebecca Guzman understood clearly what it takes to protect your movies , your creative child . She passed away but her name and her work will always remain deep in my memory .

Dear Rebecca , I have never had the great pleasure to shake your hand and hug you at your festival . But I felt an extreme sadness when your host announced my name as the winner last night. We spoke by emails and you were such a fan of the movie. I wanted to say hi to you last night but I didn't get the chance to . I can't speak to you now but just know from wherever you maybe that I will always treasure this memory and your festival will always remain dear in my heart heart emoticon heart emoticon heart emoticon . I will help to keep your legacy alive
