Of all the film festivals in the world, the one in Cannes appeals most to the imagination. Probably, every young filmmaker has once secretly dreamed that his (prospective) film would be discovered there by the press, the audience and the attending international film buyers. Most important buyer on the scene is Harvey Weinstein, the boss of a major American film studio. Stephen Walker followed four filmmakers during the 1998 Cannes festival: James Merendino from Los Angeles, director Mike Hakata and scriptwriter Stephen Lloyd from London, and French filmmaker Erick Zonca. WAITING FOR HARVEY is a comical film about success, money and tinsel.
