NETFLIX AND THE DECISION BY THE CANNES FILM FESTIVAL

The Cannes Film Festival has announced that from 2018 all the films that want to compete in the show will have to be released in the French commercial cinemas.

 


This year, Cannes holds an exception with the digital platform Netflix because it has been unable to reach an agreement.

The two Netflix films, Okja by Bong Joon Ho, and The Meyerowitz Stories by Noah Baumbach, can compete for Palme d’Or, exceptionally, although they will only be displayed on the digital platform.

The Festival has confirmed that the Netflix films will be “in the official selection and competition”, as announced on “April 13” in response to “rumours” about their exclusion.

Through a statement, Cannes has explained that it has asked Netflix, “in vain”, the exhibition of the filmes in the French cinemas.

The Festival regretted that it could not reach an agreement with the company and said that it understood the “concern” that has generated this issue in the sector:

“From now on any film that wants to compete in Cannes will have to be committed before being distributed in the French cinemas”, it has pointed out.
