Cannes Film Festival opens with focus on gender equality

Kristen Stewart Wears Lion Brooch To Cannes Film Festival 2018 Opening Ceremony

Earlier, it won a 15,000 United States dollars prize in the Asian Project Market in the framework of the Busan Film Festival in October 2017. Blanchett asked. "Not specifically". They are not there due to their gender.

The award-winning actress also premiered her first short film as a director, "Come Swim", at the festival a year ago.

That change is clearly being seen and felt across the festival this year.

Farhadi strode up the red carpet arm in arm with Bardem and Cruz, who wore a black ball gown and long ruby earrings, and Bardem, along with Argentine co-star Ricardo Darin, who is also a screenwriter and director in his own right.

On its official Twitter account, Embassy of the Kingdom of Saudi Kingdom in Egypt stated that the Saudi Film Council affiliated to the General Authority for Culture will set up pavilion during the festival, displaying 9 of the most important Saudi movie productions, as well as introducing various activities. Absolutely. Would I expect and hope that that's going to happen in the future?

In an interview published in Vanity Fair last week, Blanchett revealed that Weinstein sexually harassed her. But before that, we will see Cannes regular Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, attracting spotlight with her appearance at the French Riviera on the May 12 and 13. "Harmony can't always be creative", she said.

Cavs Reportedly Won't Punish Rodney Hood for Refusing to Enter Game 4
With Cleveland leading 110-80 and on its way to sweeping the series, the Cavs called a timeout to replace superstar LeBron James . Hood was the only player not to play in Game 4, though the Cavs do not view what he did as an act of defiance, a source said.

He added that the Netflix drama, begun in 2017 when the streaming giant had two films in competition at Cannes, could have a third act.

The other members of this year's jury are directors Ava DuVernay, Denis Villeneuve and Andrey Zvyagintsev, French actress Lea Seydoux, Taiwanese actor Chang Chen, Burundian singer Khadja Nin and French writer Robert Guediguian. "It was film that allows me to assert my voice in the world". Several Netflix titles, including Alfonso Cuaron's "Roma" and the recently completed Orson Welles film "The Other Side of the Wind", had been expected to premiere this year.

Does feminism clash with the glamorous side of Cannes -the red carpet, for instance?

In the festival's Un Certain Regard section is "Rifiki", a lesbian romance from Kenya that has already been banned at home. And he has brought Star Warsback to Cannes for the megawatt premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Von Trier, who was declared "persona non grata" at the festival in 2011 after making sympathetic comments about Nazis, was last fall accused by Bjork of sexual harassing her on the set of Dancer in the Dark, a charge von Trier denied.

Iranian Jafar Panahi, whose 3 Faces is in competition, and Russian director Kirill Serebrennikov's film Leto (or Summer), are critics of their government and will not be present to accept the award if it goes to them.
