From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 1970 Cannes Film Festival was the 23rd competition. This year, Robert Favre LeBret, the founder of the festival, decided not to include any films from Russia and Japan (their flags were missing on the Croisette). He was tired of the "Slavic spectacles and Japanese samurai flicks." [1] The Russians took back their juror Sergei Obrazov (head of Moscow puppet theater) and left the jury panel with only eight members.
