Netflix(Online platforms) Vs Cinemas.

The row over Netflix's place at Cannes has been reignited by its jury on the first day of the prestigious festival.

For the first time, two Netflix films are competing for the Palme d'Or this year.

However from next year, films will have to be released in French cinemas if they want to be considered.


This is probably the way it's gonna be in the future everywhere, not just France. Fuck cinemas, we'll just show it on our own platform. For the romantic in me, this is sad. The cinema is an experience, while the on tap ability to watch films on Netflix kinda takes that away. It's a progression that we can't stop, but I think it's a bit sad.
