Cate Blanchett Defends Cannes Film Festival's Low Selection of Female Directors

Cate Blanchett is defending the lack of female directors at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, arguing that change will come, but “not overnight.”

“There are several women in competition, and they’re not there because of their gender, they’re there because of the quality of their work, and we’ll be assessing them as film-makers, as we should be,” the 48-year-old actress expressed at the opening-day jury press conference for the festival (via The Guardian).

“A few years ago there were only two [female directors in competition],” Cate added. “The selection committee now has more women on board than in previous years, which will obviously change the lens through which the films are chosen. But these things are not going to happen overnight.”

“Would I like to see more women in competition? Absolutely. Do I expect and hope that that’s going to happen in the future? I hope so,” Cate continued. “But we’re dealing with what we have this year, and our role in the next almost two weeks is to deal with what is in front of us.”

'Blade Runner 2049' Director Denis Villeneuve Talks Box Office Disappointment

Director Denis Villeneuve has opened up about the underwhelming box office performance of Blade Runner 2049.

The flick, starring Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling, has earned just $74 million in total in the US box office, rendering the film a bit of a disappointment in financial terms.

“As a filmmaker, I’m not arrogant,” Denis told Vulture. “People put a lot of money in the movie to allow me to make something like Blade Runner. They trusted me, and they gave me a lot of freedom, and they are friends. So of course I want the movie to be a success at the end of the day. It’s a long journey, but I want them not to lose money.”

Pictured: Harrison joining his co-stars Ana de Armas and Sylvia Hoeks, as well as director Denis at their Blade Runner 2049 press conference held at the Ritz-Carlton on Monday (October 23) in Tokyo, Japan.

FYI: Ana is wearing a Proenza Schouler dress with Christian Louboutin shoes. Sylvia is wearing Pallas.
