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

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

Actress Cate Blanchett, jury president for the 71st Cannes Film Festival, touched upon the conversation about women in Hollywood, saying it will take some time for change to ensue. This the jury that will decide on the winning movies at the festival, more importantly, choice of the Palme d'Or victor.

The two-time Oscar victor, who is the chairman of this year's Palme d'Or jury, opened the annual film event with a press conference on Tuesday (08May18), and was quick to address the drama surrounding Russian Kirill Serebrennikov and Iran's Jafar Panahi, whose films Leto and 3 Faces will premiere at Cannes this week.

The actresses were joined by fellow jury members Ava Duvernay, Lea Seydoux, Khadja Nin, Chang Chen, Robert Gu├ędiguian and Andrey Zvyagintsev. Not specifically. the women here are not here due to their gender. They are there because of the quality of their work. Blanchett, who also heads the jury, did not hide her unhappiness Tuesday that only three of the 21 directors in the running for the top Palme d'Or prize are women.

'A few years ago there were only two, and I know the selection committee has more women on board than in previous years, which will obviously change the lens through which the films are chosen, ' she said. Absolutely. Do I expect and hope that is going to happen in the future?
