Cannes Day 6: Jeffrey Katzenberg

by HFPA May 21, 2014

Its safe to say it’s been a good week for Jeffrey Katzenberg. Cannes reaction to (Golden Globe nominee) Dean DeBlois’ How To Train Your Dragon 2 was largely positive after last week’s world premiere, preceded by a scheduled appearance on the Croisette by the film's main star – yes, that would be Toothless the friendly dragon, accompanied by some of the film’s human voice talent (Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Djimon Hounsou). The next day the DreamWorks Animation CEO was named Officer of the Arts and Letters in a Palais ceremony presided over by French Culture Minister Aurelie Filippetti. Between festivities our Elisabeth Sereda caught up with him.
