Berlin Film Festival Responds To Exhibitor Anger Over Netflix’s Presence In Competition

Yesterday, 160 German independent exhibitors sent a strong message to the festival and German culture minister Monika Grütters in which they demanded Isabel Coixet’s drama Elisa Y Marcela be removed from the competition strand. “The Berlinale stands for the big screen, Netflix the small screen,” they said. European arthouse cinema body CICAE also voiced frustration at the decision. – Andreas Wiseman, Deadline Hollywood » http://bit.ly/2UVUxLI
