French Film Board Rejects Limited Release for Netflix’s Cannes Competition Films

11 May 2017 2:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris – France’s National Film Board said Thursday that it has rejected the idea of granting Netflix a temporary visa for a limited release of the streaming giant’s two films in competition at the Cannes Film Festival, Bong Joon-ho’s “Okja” and Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories.”

The decision came a day after Cannes officials unveiled a new rule, effective in 2018, demanding that all films in competition secure theatrical distribution in France.

After Cannes unveiled its lineup last month, Netflix initiated negotiations with Paris-based outfit The Jokers to have the distribution company handle discussions with the film board about a temporary visa for “Okja” and “The Meyerowitz Stories.” Such a permit would allow Netflix to offer a maximum of six public screenings in France for up to one week. Netflix apparently hoped that the limited release would allow it to make the films available for streaming right away, »

Two months after Netflix sent out a cryptic tweet that led fans to speculate another season may be on the horizon, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos didn’t exactly debunk the rumors.

6 March 2017 8:57 AM, PST | | See recent news »

I can’t believe I’m about to type these words: I don’t think I want Gilmore Girls to return.

This weekend’s news that Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos has begun “very preliminary” talks with (presumably) Warner Bros. for a second revival that would (presumably) pick up where last fall’s A Year in the Life miniseries left off initially filled me with excitement. As you know, I lapped up Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino’s four-part continuation like a blue whale coming off a 30-day fast. And, yes, it left me wanting more.
