This year's Cannes film festival has no US moviemakers featured at one of its leading panels

With the Cannes film festival slowly returning to operation, it's interesting to note there's no US film producers to be seen at the Critics Week segment:
The Cannes Film Festival’s parallel Critics’ Week section is celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2021 with a lineup that is heavy on French talent and nonexistent when it comes to U.S. filmmakers. This year’s Critics’ Week selection includes 13 world premieres, seven of them in competition. As always, Critics’ Week is made of up first and-second time directorial efforts. The selection committee says it received 1,620 short films and watched 1,000 features in 2021. The lineup was selected by Critics’ Week artistic director Charles Tesson and his committee. Each section of the Critics’ Week lineup is made up of about 30 percent of films directed by women.

[...] Speaking on the lack of U.S. directors, Tesson said, “We didn’t have Sundance and the virtual format isn’t the same as being there, we can’t forge bonds with filmmakers in the same way. Usually we travel a lot and we develop ties over time.”
Honestly, they're not missing much, seeing how poor US cinema's become in the past decade. I know it's not like Europe's doing much better in every respect - indeed, they too can turn out tasteless stuff - but the US is where political correctness is really doing damage. That's not saying this year's setup will ensure improvement in such a hurry, obviously, but for now, I'd say it's for the best if they haven't brought about any US filmmakers, seeing what harm they could end up doing in the marxist mindset many now possess.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
