Cannes Film Festival 2018

Graphic News

May 8-19, 2018 -- The 71st edition of the annual Cannes Film Festival gets underway on the French Riviera. This year’s Palme d’Or contenders include acclaimed directors Spike Lee, Pawel Pawlikowski, David Robert Mitchell and Jean-Luc Godard, who brings his new film, Le Livre d’Image, to the festival more than five decades after his 1965 movie Pierrot le Fou, which graces this year’s Cannes poster.

Also getting its world premiere at Cannes, though outside the official competition, is Solo: A Star Wars Story, a spinoff from the franchise, directed by Ron Howard.

Two of the directors in competition, Iranian Jafar Panahi and Ukrainian Kirill Serebrennikov, are under house arrest in their home countries.

The festival will not include any movies from Netflix, which opted not to submit entries in the wake of rules banning films from the main competition if they didn’t have a French theatrical release.

Actress Cate Blanchett will chair the jury that will decide the recipients of the festival’s main awards.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
