Cannes 2018: Cate Blanchett speaks about equality at 'gladiatorial' festival

Cannes 2018: Cate Blanchett speaks about equality at 'gladiatorial' festival

Cate Blanchett has called for gender parity at the Cannes Film Festival, but accepts it "won't happen overnight".

The actress and chair of this year's jury said she would "absolutely" like to see more female directors competing for the festival's Palme d'Or award.

Yet she said coming to Cannes was "almost a gladiatorial sport" and it was important that film-makers were "ready" for the exposure.

Of the 21 films in competition this year, only three have female directors.

Blanchett, however, made the point that "a few years ago [in 2015], there were only two".
