Jodie Foster to open second edition of Kering’s Women in Motion initiative

May 10, 2016

This May the Women in Motion Talks, hosted by Kering and The Festival de Cannes, will be opened by American actress, director and producer Jodie Foster.

The initiative aims to celebrate the role of women in cinema

The programme runs along the 69th International Festival de Cannes and provides an opportunity to celebrate the role of women in cinema and exchange views on their representation in the industry.

As a highly acclaimed industry personality, Jodie Foster will open the talk series on Thursday 12 May. The Taxi Driver star leaped to fame when she was 12 years old and has since then enjoyed a string of successes, including two Oscar awards for The Accused by Jonathan Kaplan and Jonathan Demme’s The Silence of the Lambs.

At the 69th Festival de Cannes, she will present her latest work: a crime film titled Money Monster, directed by herself and starring Julia Roberts and George Clooney. 

Other highlights of the 2016 Women in Motion programme include talks by actresses Susan Sarandon, Salma Hayek Pinault and Chloé Sevigny.

Talks and discussions will take place every day during the Festival de Cannes at the Majestic Hotel.
