Speaking at the festival ahead of the screening the actors and director retold the story behind the iconic film revealing that it had originally been planned on just a $30,000 budget to be shot with Tarantino's friends.

Lawrence Baker, a producer and friend of Tarantino's handed the script to his acting teacher who in turn gave it to Harvey Keitel who helped him raise enough money for the project and even paid for the casting sessions in New York.

Keitel also revealed that the film was almost another format saying: "We actually almost went to four, because Quentin thought at one time about doing a play."

Tarantino added that the diamond heist itself was never shown in the film as he wanted it to be ambiguous. Job well done.
