Following Cannes Film Festival’s president Pierre Lescure and artistic director Thierry Fremaux who issued a statement on Wednesday, Berlin Film Festival’s director Dieter Kosslick reacted on Thursday to the flurry of bombshell reports accusing the disgraced producer of sexual misconduct.
Kosslick said it was “scandalous that (Weinstein’s) actions have been covered up for years.”
“We must thank the brave women who now have publicly come forward. We all owe a debt of gratitude to the courageous women who have come forth publicly. Sexual abuse and sexual attacks are crimes – a fact that society unfortunately still needs to be reminded of,” added Kosslick, who has hosted Weinstein many times over the years.
In a joint statement posted on the festival’s website, Lescure and Fremaux said they were “dismayed to learn of the accusations of harassment and sexual violence leveled against Weinstein.” Describing »
