Netflix pulls out of Cannes following rule change (EXCLUSIVE) https://t.co/0uHPYZAgAi— Variety (@Variety) April 11, 2018
- 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!
