Cannes Film Festival Emily Blunt

The organisers of the Cannes Film Festival have struck back at outraged reports that women are being refused entry for certain film premieres for not wearing high heels, claiming that the rumours are “unfounded”.

The controversy being labelled as ‘flatgate’ was first reported by movie news website Screen Daily, after an unnamed ‘Cannes regular’ tipped off the site that a number of women, including some who were older and with medical conditions, were being turned away at the red carpet for failing to wear high enough heels.

Quentin Tarantino At Cannes 2014: What We Learned


Quentin Tarantino Uma Thurman Cannes Film Festival

Since winning the Palm D’Or 20 years ago at Cannes, Quentin Tarantino’s brand of filmmaking has become synonymous with cult cinema. Controversy and brilliance has followed him from Pulp Fiction to Reservoir Dogs, from The Grindhouse films to Django Unchained.

Cannes 2014 saw the Pulp Fiction gang get back together again as a special screening of the film marked two decades since it was awarded the Springtime film festival’s highest honour. QT has never been shy with the press, often polarizing with a concoction of arrogance, bloody-mindedness and – more often than not – a level of knowhow transcended by very few.
