Cannes fes­ti­val of­fi­cials ‘dis­mayed’ by We­in­stein

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - WORLD -

Cannes film fes­ti­val of­fi­cials said they have been “dis­mayed” to learn about the ac­cu­sa­tions of sex­ual vi­o­lence against Hol­ly­wood film pro­ducer Har­vey We­in­stein.

Pierre Les­cure, the fes­ti­val pres­i­dent, and gen­eral del­e­gate Thierry Fre­maux, wrote in a joint state­ment: “Th­ese ac­tions point to a pat­tern of be­hav­ior that mer­its only the clear­est and most un­equiv­o­cal con­dem­na­tion.”

We­in­stein at­tended the world-fa­mous fes­ti­val many times, and sev­eral movies he pro­duced have been se­lected in the com­pe­ti­tion.
