Cannes Film Festival Rings the ChangesMay 13, 2018
The Cannes Film Festival kicks off later, one day earlier than normal, with a number of new measures set to ensure it won't be business as usual.
Guests taking selfies on the red carpet risk being shut out of screenings in an attempt to stamp out the practice.
Press screenings for films having their world premieres at the festival will no longer be held in advance.
The festival will also work with the French government to set up a helpline for women to report sexual harassment.
It follows allegations that producer Harvey Weinstein raped one actress and behaved inappropriately to others while attending previous festivals.
Weinstein has denied all allegations of non-consensual sexual activity.
Cannes Film Festival: 10 films to look out for
This year's festival is the first to be held since the entertainment industry became engulfed in a sexual harassment scandal.
The #MeToo and Time's Up movements are sure to be referenced by those attending the event, which runs until 19 May.
