(Photo by Arthur MolaInvisionAP) The 70th Cannes Film Festival opened Wednesday under the lights of Cote D'Azur sunshine and high-wattage stars such as Will Smith and Marion Cotillard. But a brewing storm over Netflix's place at the world's most prestigious film festival clouded the event as Cannes rolled out the red carpet.
Optimism is high at this year's Cannes Cheap Toronto Raptors Hats , which features a lineup widely considered to be well-stocked with heavyweight filmmakers, including Todd Haynes ("Wonderstruck"), Sofia Coppola ("The Beguiled"), Michael Haneke ("Happy End") and Lynne Ramsay ("You Were Never Really Here"). Rancor and controversy nonetheless dogged the festival's preamble, as well as its opening day.
During the opening ceremony Wednesday, Iranian director Asghar Farhadi helped set a welcoming tone for the festival, calling it a "place where cultures speak to one another." Farhadi's presence in Cannes sharply contrasted with February's Academy Awards ceremony Cheap Toronto Raptors T-Shirts , which the filmmaker (whose "The Salesman" won best foreign language film) boycotted to protest President Donald Trump's proposed travel ban on visitors from several predominantly Muslim nations.
Farhadi collected his Oscar statuette Wednesday in France, via producer Alexandre Mallet-Guy.
But while Cannes maintained its status as an international melting pot, definitions of what qualifies as cinema continued to stir debate. For the first time, Cannes selected two Netflix releases — Bong Joon-ho's "Okja" and Noah Baumbach's "The Meyerowitz Stories" — for its Palme d'Or competition.
French theaters, which have strict rules regarding streaming service films, rebelled at the thought of a movie that won't play on the big screen winning the Palme d'Or — the biggest award in film next to an Oscar, and to some Cheap Toronto Raptors Hoodie , even more important. The festival relented and next year won't accept streaming-only films in the competition.
Earlier Wednesday, Pedro Almodovar, who's presiding over this year's competition jury, read a lengthy statement in which he said, "I personally cannot conceive of not only the Palme d'Or, but any other prize, being given to a film and then being unable to see this film on a large screen."
Coming from the head of the jury that will decide the award Customized Toronto Raptors Jerseys , the comment was striking and potentially means the Joon-ho and Baumbach films already are out of the running. But Almodovar, a Cannes regular, drew applause for his defense of the theatrical experience.
"The size of the screen should not be smaller than the chair you're sitting in. It should not be part of your everyday setting," the Spanish filmmaker said. "You must be small and humble in front of the image that's here."
Will Smith, a member of the jury that also includes Jessica Chastain, Paolo Sorrentino and Park Chan-wook, stuck up for Netflix. Later this year Cheap Toronto Raptors Jerseys , Netflix will debut one of its biggest-budget films yet, the $90 million fantasy thriller "Bright," in which Smith stars.
"In my house, Netflix has been nothing but an absolute benefit," Smith said of his children's viewing habits. "They get to see films they absolutely wouldn't have seen. Netflix brings a great connectivity. There are movies that are not on a screen within 8,000 miles of them. They get to find those artists."
Smith, who has not had a film play at Cannes before Zach Ertz Raptors Jersey , was dressed dapperly and posing cheerfully with festival-goers screaming "Will! Will!"
"West Philadelphia is a long way from Cannes," joked an enthusiastic Smith, referring to his hometown.
Security was greater than ever at the French festival, which has stepped up efforts to restrict access, added more metal detectors and even introduced an anti-drone system. France has been under a state of emergency since the November 2015 Paris attacks. This is also the first festival held since the truck attack in nearby Nice killed 86 people last June.
On Wednesday, the heightened measures were already causing something unthinkable at the stringently clockwork Cannes: slight delays at screenings and press conferences. Festival organizers have said everything was being done to maintain safety and the event's celebratory atmosphere.
"You're in a country which has got a lot of terrorist attacks. Charlie Hebdo, the Bataclan Vince Carter Raptors Jersey , Nice, one year ago. So we need to pay attention," festival director Thierry Fremaux said in an interview.
ATHENS, Oct. 14 (Xinhua) -- A distinguished London-based legal team, including human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, met with the Greek government on Tuesday to provide legal advice on the repatriation of the 2,500-year-old Parthenon Marbles from the British museum.
Greek Minister of Culture Konstantinos Tassoulas welcomed at his office lawyer Amal Clooney Tracy Mcgrady Raptors Jersey , who recently married Hollywood movie star George Clooney, Geoffrey Robertson and Norman Plamer, from the legal firm Doughty Street Chambers, and discussed Greece's legal options.
"The issue of the reunification of the Parthenon Marbles is a leading topic, which has occupied Greece for many years. With severity, faith and optimism, we owe to do everything we can for the success of this purpose Serge Ibaka Raptors Jersey , which is not only for our country, but for our cultural heritage," Tassoulas said after their meeting.
The discussion was focused on the legal route for the return of the Marbles removed from the Parthenon in 1806 by Lord Elgin, British ambassador to the Ottoman Empire when it ruled Greece.
"The strategy to be followed will be decided solely by the Greek government. Any opinion and legal proposal contributing to a better claim for marbles is welcomed by the Greek Republic," Tassoulas added.
"I am extremely optimistic that a consensus solution ca. Cheap Jerseys China Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys Shop Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale T-shirts Wholesale T-shirts Wholesale Hats China Cheap T-shirts Wholesale Cheap Hoddies Free Shipping Cheap NCAA Hoddies
