Cannes 2019 Announces Full Selection Committee, Including Four Prominent Women

Cannes 2019 Announces Full Selection Committee, Including Four Prominent Women
After an increased uptick in attention regarding a lack of female filmmaker-backed features debuting at the annual event, the Cannes Film Festival has announced this year’s full selection committee, which includes four prominent women from the world of film.

In addition to reaching parity among its committee members — something it has never been able to do among its film selections — Thierry Frémaux, General Delegate of the Festival de Cannes, and Christian Jeune, Director of the Film Department and Deputy General Delegate, have appointed Stéphanie Lamome as Artistic Advisor of the Film Department. Lamome is already a member of the eight-person selection committee, and she now joins the official organizing team of the festival, while she will continue to officiate for the selection, with an eye towards young French cinema.

The 2018 competition lineup included new works from Nadine Labaki, Eva Husson, and Alice Rohrwacher. On average, the festival’s competition

Movie Poster of the Week: Claude Sautet on Mubi

Above: French poster for Max and the Junkmen.There is the usual treasure trove of international cinema currently playing on Mubi in the United States, but in among the Ealing Comedies, the second part of an essential Heinz Emigholz retrospective, and the jamboree bag of past Cannes favorites, for me the current standouts are the four films by Claude Sautet that still have over a week left to run. One of the less well-known of the great French filmmakers of the second half of the 20th century, Claude Sautet’s films are hard to see but they are gems that should not be missed. And they also have terrific posters. Here are my favorite French and international posters for the four films that Mubi is currently showing: Max and the Junkmen (1971), César and Rosalie (1972), Vincent, François, Paul and the Others (1974) and A Bad Son (1980).Above: Polish poster for Max and the Junkmen.

In the mood for Cannes - star kiss between Jean-Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina from this year’s Cannes Film Festival poster Photo: Festival de Cannes

With just a day to go before the official launch of the full programme in Paris, the organisers of the Cannes Film Festival have unveiled the poster for the 71st edition.

It features a still taken from Jean-Luc Godard’s Pierrot Le Fou (1965), and is said to be inspired by the work of Georges Pierre (1927-2003), stills photographer who worked on the shoots of more than 100 films in a 30-year career that began in 1960 with Jacques Rivette, Alain Resnais and Louis Malle. The image features a passionate embrace between stars Jean-Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina.

Pierre also worked in partnership with Robert Enrico, Yves Robert, Claude Sautet, Bertrand Tavernier, Andrzej Zulawski, Andrzej Wajda, and of course Jean-Luc Godard. Committed to achieving recognition for stills

Cannes Film Fest Poster 2018: Stolen Kisses In Jean-Luc Godard’s ‘Pierrot Le Fou’

  • Deadline
For the second time in recent memory, a Jean-Luc Godard film has inspired the annual Cannes Film Festival poster — this year with an image from his 1965 crime/romance pic Pierrot Le Fou. It’s a fitting tribute to have another Godard movie memorialized given this year’s event marks half a century since the legendary filmmaker played a part in halting the 1968 proceedings amid a wave of civil unrest throughout France. The last Godard movie to inspire the poster was Contempt (Le Mépris) in 2016.

The fest has been teasing out info ahead of tomorrow’s lineup reveal and today unveiled the official affiche — a collectible that’s annually anticipated and dissected.

Pierrot Le Fou, based on the 1962 novel Obsession, starred Jean-Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina. He’s a TV executive bored by his bourgeois Parisian life who drops everything and runs off with an old girlfriend (Karina) who’s being chased by hitmen.

Cannes Film Festival Unveils Official 2018 Poster Featuring Godard Film
The Cannes Film Festival has unveiled its official poster for this year’s 71st edition, featuring an image from Jean-Luc Godard’s 1965 film “Pierrot le Fou.”

The poster, designed by 27-year-old graphic designer Flore Maquin, is inspired by the work of French stills photographer Georges Pierre and features “Pierrot le Fou” stars Jean-Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina.

The new poster shows Belmondo and Karina leaning out of their cars to share a kiss. The two play lovers on the run who settle for a time on the French Riviera, which is also where the Cannes Film Festival takes place.

Across a 30-year career starting in 1960, photographer Pierre, who died in 2003, worked with some of the biggest names in French cinema, including Godard, Jacques Rivette, Alain Resnais, Louis Malle, Robert Enrico, Claude Sautet and Bertrand Tavernier, as well international filmmakers such as Polish directors Andrzej Żuławski and Andrzej Wajda.

Veteran French actress Stéphane Audran, who was a favoured collaborator with the late Claude Chabrol, has died at the age of 85.

Audran, whose son Thomas announced the news of his mother’s death after a long illness today (27 March 2018), married Chabrol (his second wife) and they were together from 1964 to 1980.

Her golden years were in the 1960s and 1970s when she appeared in such titles as Les Biches, a huge success for Chabrol in which Audran won the best actress award at the Berlin Film Festival.

‘The Music Room (Jalsaghar)’ Blu-ray Review (Criterion)

Stars: Chhabi Biswas, Gangapada Bose, Kali Sarkar, Padma Devi | Written and Directed by Satyajit Ray

After the commercial failure of the second part of his Apu Trilogy, Bengali auteur Satyajit Ray opted for more commercially viable material for his next project. He turned to writer Tarasankar Bandyopadhyay, and a short story about a landlord clinging to his last motes of power as his empire crumbles around him. The result was 1958’s Jalsaghar, released internationally as The Music Room.

The landlord (or zamindar) in question is Lord Roy, played by Chhabi Biswas with a gravitas that matches his contemporary, Laurence Olivier. The film opens halfway through the narrative, with Roy as a bent old man, and the last of his servants, Ananta (Kali Sarkar), still at his side. We jump back four years to show what brought Roy to near-ruin, before the second half of the movie shows us how he

Chicago – The Gene Siskel Film Center of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago is in the midst of a series called “Journeys Through French Cinema.” The theme is based on filmmaker/film historian Bernard Tavernier’s documentary “My Journey Through French Cinema,” and highlights his experiences with the rich cinematic influences of French film.

My Journey Through French Cinema: Personal Canon-Building with Bertrand Tavernier

Names you won’t hear in Bertrand Tavernier’s personal history of French cinema: Abel Gance, Marcel Pagnol, Sacha Guitry, Alain Resnais, Philippe Garrel. Don’t expect to hear about any directors who got started after the ’60s either: Tavernier begins with a solid overview of the glories of Jacques Becker, the first director to make an impression on him (“At age six, I could have chosen worse”) and ends with an equally lengthy tribute to Claude Sautet — along with Jean-Pierre Melville, one of his two professional fairy godmother gateways to the production side of French cinema. There is, to be sure, plenty of […]

Bertrand Tavernier's odyssey by Anne-Katrin Titze

Bertrand Tavernier with Anne-Katrin Titze: "Josef von Sternberg's Macao. Dubbed in Vietnamese and I have never been able to watch the film again ..." Photo: Sophie Gluck

The day before the opening of the 54th New York Film Festival, I met with Bertrand Tavernier for an in-depth conversation on his documentary My Journey Through French Cinema (Voyage À Travers Le Cinéma Français) that spanned fashion from Mila Parély wearing Coco Chanel's ocelot coat in Jean Renoir's La Règle Du Jeu, the daring of Mireille Balin's deep décolleté in Jean Delannoy's Macao, L'Enfer Du Jeu, to Jean Paul Gaultier's reaction to Jacques Becker's Falbalas.

Bertrand Tavernier: "Also, it's learning about myself. How I discovered those films."

Everybody Runs: An Interview with Louis Garrel

  • MUBI
Two FriendsThough known primarily as an actor, Louis Garrel has been conducting appreciable efforts behind the camera as well. After directing three short films, including a César-nominated Petit tailleur, and most recently La règle de trois, Louis Garrel expands upon his fascination of threes with his first feature length film, Two Friends (Les deux amis), in which he also stars. Based loosely on the French play The Moods of Marianne, Garrel's film finds professional movie extra Vincent (Vincent Macaigne) in frenzied love with Mona (Goldshifteh Farahani), who cannot and will not give in to his romantic advances due in part to her restrictive situation, which she keeps secret. She works behind a pastry counter by day, but every evening must return to prison for curfew, not unlike an incarcerated Cinderella. Vincent enlists his best friend, the caddish Abel (Louis Garrel), to help win her over or at least understand her cooling passion.
