AVA 2018 Launch
The Festival Circuit – 71st Cannes Film Festival
The Cannes Film Festival announced its official selection last week, having imposed a sanction on selfies on the red carpet, caused anxiety with proposed scheduled changes and stirred controversy by rejecting Netflix titles from its competition. If the mean number of female filmmakers in the competition line up provoked further disquiet, a line-up that includes new work from such mighty world auters as Jafar Panahi, Hirokazu Kore-eda, Spike Lee and Jean-Luc Godard is still a mouthwatering prospect.
While the South of France in May might seem a long way from the South of Ireland in November, Cork Film Festival will be in Cannes working to secure the best films to premier in Ireland for our 63rd edition.
