Romance in a Can Film Fest

It's never too early to start the romancing. This Euro-centric/love-centric film fest features 25 indie flicks dealing with—you guessed it, love. Friday's opening festivities include a French film and, hopefully, plenty of ingénues in the audience...

LAUNCH

EZVIP and Sao Paulo Party
