  • Bomb Scare Delays Movie Screening At Cannes

The film festival later chose to keep Ojka, as shown by the "official selection" moniker on the film's poster, but issued a rule that all future Cannes competitors have to get a theatrical release in France. Films are prohibited from streaming or appearing on subscription video on demand for three years after playing in theaters. "You must feel small and humble in front of the image that is here to capture you".

The extravaganza's opening ceremony on Wednesday evening will be hosted by Italian actress Monica Bellucci, with French drama "Ismael's Ghosts", starring Marion Cotillard, as the opening film.

Smith added: "Netflix brings a great connectivity for [my kids] to the world".

"For the second time in three years, a Cincinnati-made film is making its debut at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival", said Kristen Schlotman, executive director of Film Cincinnati.

"Historically many films get into Cannes' film festival with no distribution at all", he told a press conference in Seoul to introduce Netflix's South Korean-directed film "Okja" ahead of its premiere at Cannes.

This year's program also points to changes shaking up the film industry, including the march on Hollywood by streaming giants Netflix and Amazon and the arrival of virtual reality.

With directors Pedro Almodovar and Paolo Sorrentino, plus actors Jessica Chastain and Will Smith joining the judging panel for the coveted Palme d'Or, it's gearing up to be an exciting few days.

The jury, which is also made up of Will Smith, Jessica Chastain and Paolo Sorrentino, will pick the Palme d'Or victor out of the 19 films in competition next weekend. And now they get to find those artists and they get to look them up online and they make contact.

Smith, who has not had a film play at Cannes before, was dressed dapperly and posing cheerfully with festival-goers screaming "Will!"

Looking dashing in black tux, Smith joked about his hometown to a group of festival goers, saying, "West Philadelphia is a long way from Cannes".

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.

Stars are arriving under tighter security than in previous years, 10 months after the truck attack in nearby Nice that killed 86 people.

When the topic was raised at the press conference Wednesday, Almodovar sided with the theater owners. Asked about reports that she and Reece Witherspoon are talking to Australian author Liane Moriarty and trying to develop a sequel, she teases, "It's definitely being talked about, but it takes a lot of work to get it to where we want it. So we need to pay attention", festival director Thierry Fremaux said in an interview. "This new measure will apply from the 2018 edition of the Festival International du Film de Cannes onwards", the statement read.
