Troma and Lloyd Kaufman have been a colorful and legendary participant at the Cannes Film Festival since 1971. But, as the 2018 Cannes Film Festival rolls on, Lloyd Kaufman and Troma Entertainment recall their not-so welcome visit to Cannes last year with “From Festival to Fascism” on their YouTube channel,
“I wasn’t kidding when I said, I will never go back to Fascist Cannes Film Festival. The once legitimate, pro-independent arts festival that embraced free speech and artistic expression has become just another tool for government elites, mega media conglomerates and the ‘coteries of the favored’ to dominate the art world and stomp/police out true independent art.” stated Lloyd Kaufman. “They must have learned this from the Sundance Film Festival!”
