Desmond Elliot Attends Cannes 2018, Warns Against Rail Transportation

Actor, filmmaker and politician, Hon Desmond Elliot has arrived in Cannes, France, for this year’s edition of the annual Cannes International Film Festival which opened on Tuesday.

Elliot, a lawmaker representing Surulere Constituency in the Lagos State House of Assembly, is among the delegation from Lagos at the global event, otherwise called the World Cup of film festivals.

Upon getting to festival town, he hinted of his stalled plan to board a train to Cannes from Paris, saying; “If you are thinking of using the train (as I was); besides the fact that it’s a 5 hour journey, trains are on strike ooo,” he admonished other Nigerian filmmakers, Lagos State delegates, journalists and tourists who may be coming after.

The closest airport to Cannes is in Nice, from where buses, cabs and trains are usually boarded to Cannes, but as a tourist, Elliot had planned a train ride, to enable him behold the beautiful sights that the European country holds in that part of town.
