Netflix

Netflix - Netflix's head content officer, has said the streaming giant is pulling its films from the Cannes Film Festival. The announcement made of Wednesday further intensifies the ongoing dispute between Netflix and the film festival. Cannes had previously banned any films without theatrical distribution in France from its Palme d'Or competition. That essentially rules out Netflix movies, which are released either day-and-date - on Netflix and in some theaters - or simply go straight to Netflix. In France, by law films can't be released on home entertainment platforms until 36 months after their theatrical release.
