PARIS – The Cannes Film festival will no longer screen movies for the press or the public.
The 71st Cannes Film Festival will no longer screen movies, director Thierry Fremaux stated today.
Speaking EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec, Thierry had this to say:
Films pffff! Who needs them? It has always got in de way of de parties and the yachts. So this year we are finally declaring that cinema is dead and we shall not be screening any movies. Instead Netflix will stream them to festival goers and we will all drink rose wine and eat croque monsieur and steak tartare.
But it is a film festival Thierry!
Yes it is. But so what? Things change and we are changing too. Of course, we will still have the glamour and the red carpet. But once we go in the theater we will come straight back out and go to a Cap d’Antibes for a laugh!
And what about Selfies?
They are merde. We have snipers with crossbows placed strategically and anyone trying to take a selfie will be shot through the wrist.
The Cannes Film Festival takes place from May 8 -18th. Studio Exec will be there.
