Netflix and other streaming services can no longer compete for the Golden Palm, the award for the best film of the Cannes film festival. That has the organization of the French event attached to The Hollywood Reporter.

Last year fought two Netflix movies, Okja, and The Meyerowitz Stories, to the price. Festivalbaas Thierry Frémaux indicates that he at that time hoped that the streamingplatform convinced could be the movies in the cinema. That didn’t work out, that he is the rules and adapted. All films in competition want to run, must now have been shown in French cinemas. “The people at Netflix were fond on the red carpet and present you at the same time with other movies. But they understand that their model is in opposition to our state,” said Fremaux.

Streaming services will be the ability of their films to show at the festival, but outside of the league.
