82 women protesting at Cannes win a pledge for more women directors

Their signatures hit the page just two days after 82 female film industry figures staged a red-carpet protest at the world-famous French film festival, demanding an end to gender imbalance in the film industry.

Kristen Stewart has always had a knack for making a name for herself but it seems like she's taking her time on the jury for Cannes Film Festival and running with it.

It was drawn up by French gender parity movement 5050x2020, which also spearheaded Saturday protest. "We hope that it will reinforce the realisation that the world is not the same anymore". "The world has changed". In the same period 1688 male directors have climbed these very same stairs.

Nicole Scherzinger, Naomi Campbell and Cate Blanchett were among the stars debuting show-stopping looks as they stepped out at the BlacKkKlansman premiere at Cannes.

The move stems from a red carpet protest by 82 female actors, writers, directors, and producers at the festival on Friday. Husson is one of three female filmmakers out of the 21 movies in competition for the Palme d'Or this year.

Gera's "Sir", which has been selected for Critic's Week, a sidebar of the Cannes Film Festival, will be showcased on May 14, 15 and 16 here.

Kristen spoke about the unwritten rule that women must wear heels on the red carpet at Cannes after a group of female attendees were reportedly turned away at the premiere of Carol in 2015 for wearing flat shoes.

Its key commitments include the compilation of statistics to record the gender of the filmmakers and key crew of all submissions.

In contrast to their 82, 1,866 films directed by men have been picked for the prestigious festival lineup.
