Sridevi to be honoured at Cannes Film Festival

Sridevi to be honoured at Cannes Film Festival

The festival chiefs were said to have met with gender-parity groups from five different countries in Cannes, and now aim to reach out to additional film festivals around the world.

The Cannes Film Festival has already proven interesting this year with a female dominated jury that includes Cate Blanchett and Kristen Stewart that made headlines at their photocall.

The number of stars, filmmakers and film industry professionals ascending the steps represented the number of female filmmakers who have been selected to compete at Cannes during the festival's seven-decade history.

At least two dead, 13 injured in Indonesia church attacks
The U.S. blames JAD for a suicide bombing and gun attack in Jakarta in January 2016 that left four people dead and 25 injured. He said 41 people were wounded at that location, including two police officers, while one or more of the bombers were killed.

Eighty-two women took to the red carpet in protest this past weekend over the low number of female filmmakers in competition at the world's biggest film festival. "In the same period, 1,688 male directors have climbed these very same stairs".

Kristen Stewart poses as she arrives on May 14, 2018 for the screening of the film BlacKkKlansman at the 71st edition of the Cannes Film Festival.

Lewis Film Awards held at Cannes will celebrate women from the film Industry all over the world. "We stand together on these steps today as a symbol of our determination to change and progress".

Simpson takes control at Players with 7-shot lead
At the 137-yard par-3 17th, Potter, Jr. hit a tee shot 136 yards at the green, setting himself up for the 17-foot putt for birdie. While Woods was burning up the front nine, Spieth turned in 2-under 34, but on the back nine, he had two hat-tricks of birdies.

Another user tweeted, "Hooray for #KristenStewart taking off her high heels at Cannes, what a ludicrous rule!"

Festival bosses signed up to several pledges, including that they will compile statistics according to gender, that they will make the members of selection committees and programmers public, and to sign up to a schedule for equal representation on their executive bodies. Only one female director, Jane Campion in 1993, has received the Palme d'Or, though Varda won an honorary Palme d'Or in 2015.
