A nod to “Egalite” in Cannes.

Cannes head Thierry Fremaux is having the last word — or the last laugh? — in the ongoing debate about the lack of female filmmakers in Cannes Competition this year. (See background on the controversy here.)

Fremaux took time out from the second day of the festival to Tweet this photo.


The Cannes bosses are impressively Twitter friendly, earlier this year Gilles Jacob had a laugh about that ‘leaked line-up’ malarky: “Perdu dans TGV Paris Lyon du 1er avril, carnet moleskine noire contenant liste de films. Rapporter Institut Lumière. #Discrétion#récompense.”
