After a well-documented and argumentative behind and forth, Netflix motionless that it would not be attending Cannes this year. But that doesn’t meant a streaming hulk hasn’t got a buyers during a festival, and they’re reportedly looking to snap adult Everybody Knows, a Spanish-language play starring Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem.
The film non-stop a festival this year, and if Netflix does conduct to benefit a rights it would nonetheless again move adult a doubt of either Netflix, despite being a streaming platform, should be authorised to be authorised for foe slots. For that to happen, however, Cannes manners would have to be changed.
It wasn’t always this way. In 2017 dual Netflix strange productions, Okja and The Meyerowitz Stories, premiered during Cannes to vicious acclaim. Cannes altered a statute for a 2018 festival, however, so that any film display during a festival would have to belong to despotic streaming manners set adult to defense cinema proprietors. The manners state that cinema contingency have a melodramatic recover in France, and can’t be done accessible for home streaming for 3 years after that run.
For apparent reasons this doesn’t fit Netflix’s model, so it pulled all a cinema from a festival, including those personification out of competition.
Cannes Cannes can’t
Although Netflix stands by a decision, in a new talk CEO Reed Hastings certified that a Cannes conditions did go serve than anyone expected.

While this doesn’t change a stream situation, it might good meant a icy attribute between a dual film giants will unfreeze a small in a future. It also looks like Netflix will concentration some-more on TV in France, with Hastings explaining that a concentration would now be on series.
“Standup, docuseries – there is so most we can do but being a disruptor on a film side,“ he revealed.
