After the traditional Photocall cate Blanchett, Kristen Stewart, Salma Hayek, Marion Cotillard and others of their colleagues (the action was attended by 82 Actresses and female Directors) held hands, thus opposing the discrimination in the film industry.
"We are 82 women, representing the number of female directors who have climbed these stairs since the first edition of the Cannes Film Festival in 1946". We hope that it will reinforce the realisation that the world is not the same anymore.
The Cannes Film Festival runs from May 8 to May 19.

Apple faces class action over MacBook keyboard Unfortunately for Apple , the curious case of the failing MacBook Pro and MacBook keyboards is refusing to go away. The lawsuit further asks for damages and refunds for users who have had to replace their MacBooks's keyboard.
The march was a part of the 5050 2020 In Cannes movement where on the 14 May, there will be a signing of a Pledge for Parity and Inclusion in cinema festivals. Blanchett read a statement atop the Palais steps in English; Varda read it in French.
The pledge, which will now go to additional film festivals around the world, does not require that the festival books a specific percentage of films directed by women, though it was drawn up to produce that effect. Saturday's protest came ahead of the premiere of Eva Husson's "Girls of the Sun", which is about a Kurdish battalion of women soldiers. The prestigious Palme d'or has been bestowed upon 71 male directors - too numerous to mention by name - but only two women - Jane Campion, who is with us in spirit, and Agnès Varda who stands with us today.
Joining Fremaux in signing the pledge was Director's Fortnight director Paolo Moretti and Critics' Week director Charles Tesson, both of whom made promises to improve gender equality in Cannes' biggest sidebars.
In the past, Fremaux had gone on record supporting affirmative-action-style moves to increase the number of women involved in the process, but had opposed the enforcement of any kind of gender bias in the selection of films for the festival. But he's also signaled that the festival is reanalyzing its procedures and making its selection committees gender-balanced.
