Netflix Pulls Out of Cannes

  • Netflix has pulled out of Cannes.

  • Cannes made a new rule that prohibited films without theatrical runs from being screened in competition.

  • Netflix CCO Ted Sarandos says that the rule change prohibits Netflix films from participating, and that he doesn't want Netflix films to be treated "disrespectfully" at the festival.

  • Sarandos has faith that Cannes will change its mind in the future.


I didn't think they were going to do it, tbh!
