Netflix banned from competing at Cannes Film Festival - The Verge

'Netflix has been banned from competing in the Cannes Film Festival, according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter. '

' Netflix is still allowed to show films at Cannes, Fremaux added, but its films will not be eligible for the prestigious Palme d’Or. '

'I was presumptuous, they refused,” Fremaux told THR. “The Netflix people loved the red carpet and would like to be present with other films. '

'But they understand that the intransigence of their own model is now the opposite of ours.” Starting with this year’s Cannes, which takes place in May, films screened in competition will need to have a French theatrical release. '

'Theirry Fremaux, the head of Cannes, told THR last week the ban is because Netflix refuses to release its films in theaters, choosing instead to debut them on its streaming service and, in some rare cases, do day-and-date releases so the film can be seen both online and off. '
