Arclight Films' executive vp sales gives her take on the fest.

Most overrated restaurant?

It changes every year, but the most overrated pizza is at La Pizza [Cresci]. 

Place to avoid during the festival?

Anywhere in front of the Palais around 6 p.m. if you’re not going to the red carpet.

Your "only in Cannes" moment?

I was asked to leave a restaurant because the dog at the next table didn’t like me and wouldn’t stop barking.

One thing you won’t travel without, besides your phone?

My favorite tweezers for the perfect eyebrows — got to look good on the Croisette!

Most interesting celebrity encounter?

Walking into the same clothing shop as Jamie Lee Curtis on Rue d’Antibes during the last days [of the festival] and then shopping together — she was very chill.
