Two movie passions have infected us over at MUBI: Texas Chainsaw Massacre director Tobe Hooper, and the 2012 Festival de Cannes, which is coming up in less than two weeks.

You guys already know that we’re exclusively showing two of Hooper’s very first films, his short The Heisters and his feature debut Eggshells. Well, now that you’ve got a chance to see some of Hooper’s early films now you’ve got a chance to talk to him! We are taking questions from the MUBI community for Tobe over in our web forum. We’ll be taking questions for the cult filmmaker for two weeks before selecting the best of the bunch, sending them to Tobe to answer, and posting them there and here on the PlayStation blog. Have questions about Poltergeist, making people jump out of their seats, the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre or the two restored films of Hooper’s we’re now showing on MUBI? Now’s the time to ask! Head here to post your questions.

Meanwhile: Cannes! We don’t know what will be good this year but we do know what we’re anticipating. And hey, what do you know, a lot of films by filmmakers selected for Cannes this year are playing on MUBI! There are a lot of our favorites in the lineup, so we’ll split our picks between this post and our next update here! Here’s part one:
