Sexism Debate Rages on at Cannes 2012

I wrote a piece for Subtitled Online about the sexism debate that has sprung up around Cannes this year (if sexism and cinema is a subject that interests you, you may also want to check out my pieces on the hunt for the new 'Hunger Games' director and the Bechdel Test).

The 65th Cannes Film Festival, which kicked off on 16th May 2012, has come under heavy fire from critics who have accused the festival of sexism. Of the twenty-two filmmakers whose work has been selected in competition this year, not one is female. This has sparked a very strong reaction, spearheaded by an opinion piece published on 12th May in French magazine Le Monde.
