Dune and Jane Campions The power of the dog.

Lescure, who is stepping down as Cannes president after this year’s event, to be replaced by Iris Knobloch as Cannes’ first ever female president, noted how relevant the strict festival still is. He pointed to Cannes ‘recent deal with social media giant TikTok, which will be an official partner this year, an alliance that is likely to make up both brands’ brands.

“It would be insane to ignore this means of communication,” Lescure remarked.

Cannes seeks to leverage TikTok’s billion-strong user base by delivering exclusive backstage content as well as talent interviews and, yes, glamor on the red carpet. For TikTok, Cannes gives a boost of reputation as the platform seems to position itself as a content creator.

Frémaux said this year’s Cannes competition jury will be confirmed in the coming days. He added that Cannes will add a handful of additional films to its official selection next week.
