  • ‘I am no Mel Gibson,’ von Trier says in wake of Cannes ban
    Friday May 20th 2011

    Most of the media here were startled by the release, sent by e-mail Thursday from the Cannes Film Festival’s press office, declaring that the festival directors had held a special early morning meeting and declared the Danish director Lars von Trier “persona non grata” at the festival for making Nazi jokes the day before at his press conference.

    In what’s become a natural evolution from startup to mega-media company, Facebook hosted its first Studio Live agency event in New York today to teach creatives how to bring their clients onto the platform beyond free brand pages. It took zero dollars on consumer marketing to get Facebook to more than 600 million users, but for agencies and their big brands, the social network has begun to roll out the red — well, blue — carpet. To continue on its climb to topple the biggest online ad sellers, Google and Yahoo, even Facebook is going to have to play the agency game — which means free lunch, sizzle reels and trotting out executives to sell, sell, sell.
