Marc Missonnier said he received his accreditation badge after Cannes Film Festival allegedly revoked it over his boycott calls.
The French producer took to Twitter to share his accreditation badge update, “All’s well that ends well. Thank you Cannes Film Festival for this gesture and to all those who showed their support. Back to Paris this afternoon.”
The news comes amidst Missonnier raised his voice against the acceptance of Catherine Corsini’s film Homecoming, riven by on-set misconduct accusations, at the Cannes Film Festival.
The 52-year-old, who has produced hits including 8 Femmes and Swimming Pool and Marguerite, tweeted, “I’ve just arrived on Croisette like every year for more than 30 years. Even if this year will be different because, as I announced, I will not be going to see any of the films in Official Selection.”
The producer claimed, “And there, I learn that it (accreditation)had been cancelled a few days earlier without anyone telling me because, and I quote, ‘I called for a boycott in a virulent personal campaign.’ I have therefore been PUNISHED and sent to the corner like a naughty schoolboy. The only thing I can do is laugh.”
