Netflix Won't Be Screening at Cannes 2019


  • In 2017, Netflix showed several films at Cannes Film Festival, including Okja and The Meyerowitz Stories. But last year, facing anger from French theater owners, Cennes announced that only films being released theatrically in France would be eligible to screen at the festival.

  • Last year's Roma, which could have screened at Cannes, screened at Venice instead and won the Golden Lion, the festival's highest honor.

  • Executives from Netflix and Cannes have met several times since then, with Cannes not wanting to miss out on the next Roma. But despite these peace talks, they have not arrived at a solution.

  • This year, it might not matter because Netflix doesn't have any festival-ready films. Several of their upcoming releases - The Irishman, The Laundromat, The King, and Uncut Gems - will not be finished post-production in time for Cannes.

  • Netflix is still planning to send an acqusition team to the festival.
