FULL SLATE: Jodie Foster will deliver the opening talk in Kering’s “Women in Motion” program at the Cannes Film Festival, the luxury and sporting goods conglomerate announced on Tuesday.

Foster made her Cannes debut 40 years ago at age 13 in Martin Scorsese’s “Taxi Driver,” which won the Palme d’Or award at the festival that year. This time around, she will be presenting her fourth directorial feature “Money Monster,” starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts.

Other speakers scheduled during the fortnight include Susan Sarandon and Geena Davies, recipients of the 2016 ‘Women in Motion’ awards; Juliette Binoche; Salma Hayek Pinault, and Chloe Sevigny.

This is the second year of the program, whose goal is to support women professionals within the film industry.
